Through the Rhode Island Foundation’s generous support, the Warren
Alpert Medical School of Brown University is fostering faculty development
that will promote primary care career choices among medical students.
The final event will focus on medical student evaluations. Through a combination of lecture, small group discussions, and review, this session will answer why we
evaluate, determine methods on evaluating, and discuss the correlations (or lack thereof) of these methods with future promise as clinicians. It will also touch on
grading and its lack of uniformity within and among medical schools, focusing on the specific grading processes used at Alpert Medical School. Lastly, the course will
address the process of writing letters of recommendation.
