    Clerkship grades in the Psych clerkhship for the most recent period are late.  LCME standard,  ED30, specifies that students must have their clerkship evaluations between 4 and 6 weeks after they have completed a clerkship. UVA requires that evaluations be completed in 5 weeks.  The Psychiatric Medicine Clerkship Director will be contacted by Bill Wilson and Don Innes.

    The newly allocated call rooms on the “0” floor of University Hospital should not require extensive renovations.

    This proposal was discussed at length and will be shared with School of Medicine administration and the Mulholland Society for input.
