The CRC, which runs throughout the 18-month pre-clerkship curriculum, is designed to develop the necessary and fundamental clinical reasoning skills employed by physicians in the delivery of clinical care, and to foster the development of life-long learning habits and collaborative team-based care.
Working in weekly small group sessions, the role of the CRC facilitator is to develop these skills in preparation for clerkship rotations, graduate medical education and eventual independent practice.
Congratulations to our new CRC Facilitators!
