Curricular materials for every student in the pediatric clerkship are available on the medical student website for printing, reading and disseminating as needed.

Each rotation, you as site director or coordinator, will receive for your student(s) a biography and a biographical letter with the students picture. In the mail, quarterly, you will receive for each medical student a "Basic Pediatric Clerkship" manual, provide this manual to the student during  the student orientation. You may show at the student orientation the Clerkship orientation video produced by the Clerkship Director, Jordan Symons

You will also receive for each medical student a "Basic Pediatric Clerkship" manual and the required clerkship forms that are pre-populated for the student. Please give this to the students during orientation.

Final Exam

The Final examination is a 100 question test that is taken by the student using a computer at your site.  The exam is solely based on the 32 Aquifer cases and the exam is created by Med-U, creator of the Aquifer cases. Students are required to use a computer with a recommended lock-down browser, required to be installed to initiate the exam.  The exam length is 2.5 hours, unless there is a student accommodation letter from the University of Washington Disabilities office.  All exams are now on the last Thursday of the clerkship, to allow students to travel on Friday to their next clerkship site.
