The Progressive Learning Model

Focus of the Month

Structure Your Student's Clerkship Experience

Each student entering your clerkship has a unique combination of strengths and weaknesses. During an already-packed rotation, you need to provide your student with  diverse experiences in patient care, plenty of feedback, exposure to documentation in the clinical setting,  and personalized precepting according to the student’s level and abilities. However, achieving these goals over the course of a 4-, 6-, or 8-week clerkship rotation may pose a challenge.

The Progressive Learning Model provides an overarching structure for a sample clerkship. The student’s abilities, level of involvement, and level of responsibility should all progress over the course of his/her time in your practice. You can easily modify the model for each individual student's needs.
