Summative Assessment

Prior to the completion of the Summer II semester, a comprehensive summative examination covering topics presented during the Didactic Phase will be administered. The summative examination will include components of a written examination as well as demonstration of competency using clinical application stations. The purpose of this examination is to provide the Program with a measure of each student’s base of medical knowledge and preparedness for the Clinical Phase. Students who earn a grade of less than 70% (C) will be required to remediate area(s) of deficit and may be referred to the Student Progress Committee (SPC) for recommendations on progression in the Program.
