Four sessions are planned for the upcoming year, with the anticipation that this number will be increased in the following year. Suggestions regarding content and structure were offered.

  4. The tentative calendar for the upcoming clerkship year was presented by Dr. Allison Innes and was reviewed by the committee.

  5. Issues to be addressed at future meetings include the need for formal skills assessment as part of the clerkships. The status of the CPX examination for this year was reviewed by Dr. Lisa Doyle.

The meeting was adjourned at 6PM.
