Requirements per block
The below requirements should be considered during both of your four-week internal medicine blocks (Med I and Med II), but the entire portfolio is not due until the end of the 12-week MAP clerkship block because the patient log that you keep is continuous throughout so would be impractical to turn in at the end of four weeks. Each of these components are part of your formative assessment and should be thought of as enhancements of your clinical skills, not checkboxes of requirements to fulfill. We have found that while these activities happen naturally on the clerkships, having some required has allowed you to get more structured formative observation and feedback. There are four elements of the portfolio.

Requirements by end of 12-week MAP clerkship
For the inpatient medicine clerkship component, using your Core Curriculum Checklist, complete any Aquifer cases to address topics NOT covered in case conference or simulation. Remember to log into Aquifer's website using your Yale email address to get access (same procedure as CLIPP cases for Pediatrics rotation).
