Family Medicine Elective-for 18 Week WRITE Session

WRITE students at 18-week sites earn a two-week Family Medicine Elective credit. During students' last three weeks (we suggest three weeks for this two week elective since students are also finishing up their other clerkship requirements and WRITE projects) of WRITE, they must work primarily with their Family Medicine preceptor(s). Students are expected to perform, and will be evaluated, at a higher level for this 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 "Sub-Internship Resources for Preceptors" section of the FM web site.

At the end of the two-week elective, the primary preceptor is expected to complete a formal evaluation of the student using the online evaluation system, E*Value. Please refer to the FM Web site for information about grading criteria and anchors. The primary preceptor can use collected responses from other preceptors to create a final evaluation in 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.
