    Rotation exams

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know how these clinical rotation exams are? Has anyone taken any yet? What if you are not in the Chicago area or even in Illinois, and you can't get to the school to take the exams?

    Aren't there standard exams all students in the US take after each rotation? I thought there was a uniform exam that was given whether you were a US grad or foreign grad. Kind of keeping with the idea of the Step, an exam that makes sure everyone is up-to-par on their information, regardless of education background.

    According to Windsor, we are supposed to travel to Chicago and take an exam after each rotation. I was just wondering if anyone has done that yet or knows anymore about them?

    What the hell? What if the school does its usual gaandmasti and tests on trivial stuff, like it did in basic sciences, instead of what is relevant and being taught in our rotations?

    This is assuming, of course, that one has set up their own rotations at other hospitals.

    Dear Windsor Clinical Clerks:
    This is your time as medical clinical clerks to move onward and upward through 48 weeks of core rotations, 12 weeks of electives plus another set of mandatory 12 weeks of selectives in research, community medicine, and preventative medicine. Behind you are a group of dedicated coordinators who are here to help you and in front of you is information to download. Located in the Student Info section on the home page under Student Downloads is your Clinical Package prepared to guide you through your core rotations along with a set of Clinical Log requirements. Please download both of these.
    The Clinical Logs are to be prepared and sent back by email to Dr. Margoles at the US Information Office, Monee, IL after each rotation is completed.
    Important instructions/information regarding the logs:
    * Use the Log chart to list of your choice ten (10) important cases during your rotation
    * Take two (2) cases from that log chart and prepare a thorough work-up
    * There are eleven (11) questions which you are asked to think about and list of activities and experiences associated with each of the eleven (11) questions
    * Also, you have a Student Evaluation of the Clinical Preceptor evaluation form to email back stating your opinion of the rotation
    * Each month you will have an opportunity to take the Windsor core exams; if you do not take these exams then you are expected to take the 100 MCQ Comprehensive exam sometime during MD10
    (Please Note: You will not necessarily be required to attend each month, it is based on the rotation that you are currently in. For example, if you are in a 6 week or 12 week rotation, you will attend the next available meeting once the 6 or 12 weeks is completed.)

    So you can either take Windsor core exams or a 100MCQ at the end

    Although it seems like more work and a hassle to do, I think it's best to take the exams after the rotations they want you to take it after. 100 MCQs at the end of clinicals is going to be a nightmare ONLY BECAUSE there will be no guidelines on what to study.

    Sure, you should have taken the Step 2 and all that jazz, but it could be unnecessary stress at the end and the school has been shady in the past about passing students on all-or-nothing exams.

    To each their own, but frequent testing>>> one lump sum at the end. This is how the US students do it, except I believe they all take the same standardized clinical test. So theirs is much harder.

    Just curious, how do you receive this information. Are they sending out a mass email? I have not received any of this information. Most of the time I have to request it. I am glad you posted the information. I would have been in the dark about this 100 MCQ and core exams if I didnt check valueMD or FB.
