Anchoring Clinical Experience is a two-month clinical clerkship designed to ground the clinical skills learned in ICM. Held at Mount Auburn, an academic community teaching hospital, the clerkship will be divided into one month of outpatient/ambulatory medicine split between a primary care site as well as subspecialty clinics, and one month of inpatient medicine on the hospital wards. In addition to attending the daily hospital based teaching conferences for Mount Auburn internal medicine residents, students will have a case-based didactic curriculum that will focus on core topics in internal medicine. Finally, students will be expected to complete a case presentation with a focus on applying primary basic science and clinical trials literature into a discussion of clinical reasoning and decision-making.
Written evaluations will be completed by the students’ primary ambulatory preceptor, as well as the students’ inpatient attending(s). If the student works particularly closely with a subspecialty preceptor during the ambulatory month, an additional evaluation may be requested.

The final grade will be determined by the course directors, based primarily on evaluations by clinical faculty (80%), in addition to their performance in didactic conferences, including attendance, participation, and their formal case-based presentation (20%) .
