Faculty instructors will 1) facilitate small group discussions related to students’ experience seeking and receiving feedback at their CAP sites and 2) support applying tips learned as students practice giving and receiving feedback from one another based on brief case presentations.

CAP Physical Diagnosis Practice Sessions (August – multiple sessions offered) 
Overview: Students will have 60 min session with trained Standardized Patients (SPs) to review the Cardiac, Pulmonary, Abdominal, and Musculoskeletal exams. The SPs will provide feedback to the students based on the approved checklists of skills for each type of exam. There will be two faculty present at each session to provide assistance, clarification, and teaching when the student-SP dyad needs it. This is formative exercise for the students and the faculty will not need to assign grades or provide written feedback. Faculty may sign up for one or more sessions.
