Scope and Applicability:

All School of Medicine Faculty and Residents

Standard Practice Guideline:

Medical students participating in clinical activities and the care of patients must be supervised at all times by physicians, residents, nurses and other licensed practitioners who are practicing within the scope of their own practice as delineated by the credentialing body of the clinical site (Beaumont Health System). 

Faculty supervising students must be credentialed by the medical school’s affiliated-institution where the faculty member practices. 

Faculty supervising students must be aware of the medical student’s level of training, the objectives for the clerkship, the Standards of Conduct For the Learning Environment Guidelines and the Student Mistreatment Guidelines.

Individuals who provide psychiatric, psychological, medical care or other health services to a medical student must have no involvement in the academic assessment and promotion of the medical student receiving those services. 

Individuals having a close personal relationship with a specific medical student outside of the academic setting must have no involvement in the academic assessment and promotion of that student. 

The School of Medicine will also request assurance that students participating in electives or sub-internships at other LCME-accredited institutions will be provided faculty supervision as outlined above. 

All electives taken at non-LCME accredited institutions, for which Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine is giving credit toward graduation, will follow requirements as outlined above. An Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine faculty member will be appointed to review the elective application outlining the learning objectives. 

Rationale:

The foundation of this standard practice guideline is to provide general instructions regarding faculty supervision of students and the evaluation of medical students in clinical programs. Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine shall utilize the following standard practices as it relates to supervision and the evaluation of students in clinical settings.
