2021 Clerkship Directors Workshop: What can COVID do for you
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to change how we envision neurology education for medical students. We were forced to adapt new teaching strategies, new learning strategies, new assessment strategies, all in the blink of an eye. All of this was done in the setting of altered expectations and a very high stress environment. This course will review some of the new ways we have adapted to teaching and assessing virtually by highlighting some best practices and innovative approaches. We will also consider which of these new strategies may be helpful to use on an ongoing basis, long after the COVID pandemic. We will discuss how teaching and learning expectations may need to be modified based on learner burnout.
2022 Clerkship Director's Workshop
This workshop explores novel ways of evaluating clerkship students and begins with an introduction as to why we need new means of assessments. Two panelists who are currently using Pass/Fail grading for their clerkships with multi-modal systems of assessment using collection of multiple data points presented details of their own clerkships at Harvard Medical School & University of California San Francisco. The workshop concluded with a Question & Answer Session for the panelists.
