Developing an Advanced Patient Care Clerkship

New Clinical Clerkships

Departments and Regions that want to develop new Advanced Patient Care clerkships should reach out to the appropriate Department Advanced Patient Care Director, as well as the Co-Directors of  Advanced Patient Care Clerkships for guidance and requirements, Susan Merel and Tomoko Sairenji.

Once a new clerkship has been planned and developed the process to create a new Advanced Patient Care Clerkship is the same as any new clerkship.

  • Complete and Submit the SOM New Clerkship Site Application for review by the Explore & Focus Committee.
  • Once approved by the Explore & Focus Committee, the appropriate department will submit the clerkship for University of Washington Curriculum approval and addition to the course catalog.
  • Once the UW Course Application Process has been completed and the course approved with upper campus, you will be contacted by the Clinical Curriculum Specialist, Gina Franco, regarding steps to finalize your newly developed and approved clerkship.

Existing Clerkships

Departments and Regions planning development of existing elective clerkships to meet the Advanced Patient Care requirements should contact to the Co-Directors of the Advanced Patient Care Committee for guidance and clerkship requirements, Susan Merel and Tomoko Sairenji.
