Family Medicine Elective
WRITE students earn 4 weeks of Family Medicine Elective credit during this four week elective which is taken during the last month of the WRITE program; students must work with their Family Medicine preceptor(s) during a preponderance of the four weeks. Students are expected to perform, and will be evaluated, at a higher level for this four-week experience than for the required clerkship experience as they have now completed all 3rd year required clerkships and essentially are fourth-year students.
Goals, requirements, and expectations for the FM Elective are located on the FM web site: uwfmc.org
At the end of the four-week elective, the primary preceptor is expected to complete a formal evaluation of the student using the online evaluation system, E*Value. Available on the Family Medicine, Info for Faculty Website are evaluation aids (including grading criteria and anchors) as well as the FM Clinical Elective Evaluation Form which can be downloaded, printed and distributed it to preceptors who worked with the student in family medicine.
Primary preceptors can use collected responses to input student evaluation into E*Value. More information on using E*Value and a direct link into the system will be sent to the primary preceptor at the time evaluations are due.
