Click Here for the WRITE Preceptor Submissions Summary & Checklist which is an overview of all WRITE requirements.
WRITE students receive credit for four weeks of outpatient IM while at their WRITE sites. Prior to departing for their WRITE sites, students will have had eight weeks of inpatient IM, done all 12 of the required online case modules (SIMPLE cases), the cardio-pulmonary mini-CEX, and 8-9 of the 12 required lectures (the remainder are online). Some students will also have taken the final exam--they have the choice of taking the final exam at the end of the Seattle IM experience or at the end of their WRITE experience.
During the WRITE rotation, students are expected to complete the remaining required patient logging (PxDx in E*Value) and watch the remaining required recorded lectures that were not seen live while in Seattle. Additionally, students are encouraged to do as many additional SIMPLE cases as they can.
The Department of Internal Medicine Clerkship web site is at tiny.cc/uw-ms3med; here you will find the core clinical concepts, expectations, grading using P/RIME, and educational resources. For all preceptors, but especially for new preceptors, we strongly recommend reading the preceptor’s guide: tiny.cc/uw-imteach. It’s fairly short and has lots of valuable teaching tips.
Each WRITE student is responsible for bringing a copy of the course syllabus/orientation materials and Internal Medicine Clerkship Guide, By Paauw DS, Burkholder L, Migeon M, eds. 2007. They also have access to the full online content of the UW library system through the HealthLinks care provider toolkit, http://healthlinks.washington.edu/care_provider.
Medicine Student Programs requests that the names and email addresses of the Internal Medicine preceptors who work with the students at each WRITE site be emailed to Carmelita Mason-Richardson, email@example.com. Please email Carmelita with the exact schedule for when student works with internal medicine physician(s). IM preceptors will receive prompts to do evaluations on their students at week 6, week 12 and week 18--or at the end of the four full weeks spent with the preceptor - dependent on each site/student's IM schedule. These progressive evaluations will then be compiled electronically and generated through E*Value to the WRITE Site Director, who will in turn, edit and submit a Preliminary Final Grade Form to the Medicine Student Programs Office to be incorporated into the student's final grade, along with the student's Seattle portion evaluations.
