Each medical student will be assessed and provided with formal formative feedback early enough during each required course or clerkship of four or more weeks in length to allow sufficient time for remediation. Required courses of four or more weeks in length provide formal formative feedback through verbal or written feedback from the course director or a designated faculty person (e.g. PBL facilitator or project mentor) at or near the mid-point of the course.

Required clerkships of four or more weeks in length provide formal formative feedback through verbal or written feedback from the clerkship director, informed by feedback gathered from relevant faculty members at or near the mid-point of the course.

Any courses or clerkships less than four weeks in length provide alternate means by which a medical student can measure their progress in learning. The course or clerkship director is responsible for determining the appropriate method of formative assessment or feedback that allows this.

The curriculum committee is responsible for reviewing the decisions of the course and clerkship directors.
