    Clinical Portfolio

    Advertisements



    Am I the only person who has recently been asked for their "clinical portfolio" after being told in an email sent only to my AUA email address? Of course the first email goes to the school address and the followup comes straight to my gmail. Did I miss something this major being discussed on VMD?

    Now they want me to restrospectively figure out which patients I cared for and procedures & conferences that I was involved with in August and September (and from now until I finally escape AUA).

    Anyone else in the same boat? Take heed: hidden amidst the spam and viruses in your AUA email is an email from Dr. PB about this new hurdle to jump over.

    I just received it (as well as a colleague) with the same cryptic message, "You have until the 22nd or we will not release your grades." I emailed the people back stating that it was almost impossible to reconstruct a patient log and portfolio from memory and that they really should've advised us of this beforehand.

    I was basically told, "Do it from memory as best you can because accreditation is riding on this." I was also informed this came to my "school email" which I have not had access to since the island. I had nothing but trouble trying to acces it sateside and finally was told by the coordinator that they would use my pesonal email instead. That was almost three years ago. So yeah, I didn't receive the email I supposedly was sent 2 months ago telling me to compile this in the first place.

    Oh well, this will be the most poorly constructed patient log I've ever made in my life. Almost akin to fiction really.

    What accreditation could be riding on this?

    i guess they didn't include that form when y'all started rotations..
    my paperwork included a form that asked for all that..
    i thought they wanted us to fill it out based on 5th semester but it's for later.
