Clerkship Logs

A printable version of these logs is available. [PDF - 166 kB]

The log items represent the mandatory clinical encounters, physical exam skills and procedural skills that students are expected to document that they have completed. These lists are not meant to limit students to these presentations and skills alone. Students are expected and encouraged to engage in all learning opportunities presented to them, provided that they have the appropriate supervision.

Completion of a log item does not require that the student has performed an initial assessment of a patient presenting with the specific clinical complaint. Assessing, synthesizing information and managing a patient with a previously diagnosed condition is acceptable.
