Post-Clerkship Education Subcommittee
The Post-Clerkship Education Subcommittee (PCES) is responsible for monitoring the elective process for students that have finished the required clerkship rotations, including assessing the quality of the current electives, determining gaps in the electives offered and opportunities for new electives, as well as annually reviewing the post-clerkship schedule to ensure students are prepared for residency training. The PCES will oversee students’ readiness for residency training, assuring that all graduating physicians have been provided the knowledge and skills and attitudes to prepare them for residency training. This includes providing the necessary opportunities to meet the core professional activities for entering residency, as well as equip students with the necessary clinical and research and other opportunities through career advising to successfully obtain the residency of their choice. The responsibilities of the PCES are delegated by the Curriculum Management Committee and include resolving curricular areas of concern through process improvement methodology, as well as developing the working groups and action plans to address any issue or problem, as well as any gap or opportunity identified. The PCES also monitors the activities associated with delivery of the curriculum.
