Creating a Hybrid Clerkship Curriculum that Blends Traditional Block and Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship Features

Sarah K. Wood, MD, FAAP, Assistant Dean for Curriculum, Year Three Curriculum Director, Integrated Clerkship Director, Assistant Professor of Clinical Biomedical Science Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine Florida Atlantic University
The Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University is a new medical school that had the unique opportunity to create an innovative clerkship curriculum with 7 partner hospitals in South Florida for its class of 64 medical students. Given the challenge of creating the best clinical educational experience in the local medical landscape from the ground up, Dr. Sarah Wood incorporated features from both longitudinal integrated clerkships and traditional block rotations as she faced the realities of clinical resource constraints. Rationale for how the clerkships were designed and implemented, as well as lessons learned, will be presented.

Edward G. Buckley, M.D., Vice Dean for Education, Duke University School of Medicine 
At a time when knowledge is exploding, technology is enabling us to learn more in less time. The paradigm of "knowing" is shifting to "acquiring". Our task as medical educators is to provide the infrastructure for our students to be lifelong "learners" instead of "knowers". Duke's innovative 2 year required curriculum gives endless opportunities while providing the necessary foundation to be successful. How it happened, lessons learned, and future directions will be presented.
