Acute Care Preceptors Conference, 10/27/2009
Follow-Up on 10-14-08 Conference Topics:
Student Knowledge Base - Preceptors expressed an interest in knowing what our students are being
taught before they begin their APPE rotations. As a result, we've added that to the agenda for this
conference, "Therapeutics" led by Acute Care Coordinator, Farivar Jahansouz.
Prerequisites The possibility of instituting prerequisites for Acute Care elective rotations had been
discussed. After further discussions about the issue, we decided that logistically, this would be
impossible to implement due to site availability and administrative challenges.
Standardization of Electives This continues to be an issue of discussion. A suggestion was made to
put together a committee with each site represented and begin moving toward this objective.
