SCOPE in Years 1 and 2

One half-day a month for 8 months you'll have a visit to your assigned primary care clinic. While you won't be the primary provider for your patients, you will be more deeply involved with patient care than the average first year student.

Other aspects of SCOPE

  • Submitting monthly written assignments including reflective essays, H&Ps, and clinical learning issues (four of these assignments will count towards your POM1 requirements)

  • Partnering with a third year SCOPE student on a Quality Improvement Project

  • Participating in a summer boot camp after year 1 (one week long, will not affect your participation in other summer preceptorships)

  • You'll be assigned a faculty champion who will give you feedback on your written assignments and serve as a mentor. You'll also be given preference to continue SCOPE as a second or third year student.
