Electives, sub-internships and Family Medicine (General Practice in the UK) rotations are graded on a pass-fail basis but require narrative comments. These narrative comments will be used in the MSPE. The assessment is based on a student’s daily performance in terms of knowledge, skills and professional behavior. Credit can be given only after receipt of the student’s Certificate of Completion of Elective Form (Appendix F).
In order to earn a passing grade for an elective rotation, students must earn a pass for all 3 components assessed: Medical Knowledge, Clinical Skills, Professional Behavior.
Failure of any of the 3 components of an elective will result in a fail for the final grade.
In order to remediate the failing grade, students must take and pass an additional elective in the same specialty. Only passing weeks will count toward the required elective weeks.
