WRITE Program Requirements
The student must complete all educational requirements of the clerkships and WRITE Program as well as participate in any activities planned by the WRITE Program. Additionally, students must complete the entire 20 week rotation during the specified academic year and scheduled rotation block; i.e., a portion of the rotation cannot be taken at a later date.
Other requirements for the WRITE program include:
Utilization, satisfactory completion, and submission of the WRITE Student's Patient Visit Log
Achieving stated program goals and objectives and fulfilling specific course requirements for the UWSOM Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Psychiatry clerkships; students have found that when they set up these components on the scheduling grid early in the WRITE rotation, the completion of the requirements can be more easily accomplished.
Completion of the Community Service Projects (PDF). Also see the Community Service Project Page
The accomplishment of required readings (recommend 10 hours per week minimum) as detailed by respective UWSOM clerkship departments; additionally, students must utilize the current clerkship texts
The completion of necessary examinations, assignments, and forms
