Course and Clinical Evaluations

At the end of each course, students are required to complete a course evaluation. Anonymous compilation of the evaluations is provided to Course Directors and the Directors of Didactic and Clinical Curriculum. Evaluations are reviewed and used to make improvements to individual courses, as well as the overall curriculum. Therefore, constructive student feedback provided by learners is extremely important. Students provide evaluations of clinical rotations using clinical education management software (i.e. Exxat). Constructive feedback is important in evaluation and continued use of clinical sites. Failure to complete required evaluations will result in a course grade of “incomplete” or “in progress”, until such time as the evaluation(s) is/are successfully completed. Repeated inability to complete required evaluations within the designated timeframe will be considered a violation of professional conduct, and will be addressed accordingly. (refer to Professionalism section). Clinical evaluations of preceptors may be distributed to preceptors upon request, and after a preceptor has had a minimum of 3 students.
