Scheduling Grid

In order to best utilize the time that the student spends at the WRITE Site we ask that the WRITE primary preceptor design and submit to their WWAMI Regional Office a schedule to ensure that they receive experience in all areas and which will balance the professional and academic requirements with the student's personal needs. It is recommended that the student spend the first week and the last four weeks of the WRITE rotation with their primary preceptor. The schedule should detail how the student will spend their time during an average day, week and month, and should include the following:

  • The first week should include an orientation to all departments, persons and policies that the student will be working with including clinic and hospital receptions, medical records, business offices, administration, nursing, medical education coordinators and physicians
  • Hospital rounds, office hours, emergency calls, community visits, and on-call
  • The locations, “specialties” and physicians the student will spend time with
  • A half-day per week in the clinic with the primary preceptor and consistent patient panel so that the student can build on the continuity experience
  • Time to accomplish the general and specific course requirements
  • Faculty visits, scheduled time off, scheduled seminars & meetings
  • Meetings with the student, primary preceptor, and any other preceptors who have worked with the student that past month should be scheduled to complete weekly and monthly evaluations of the student’s progress and to review the student’s Patient Visit Log data\
