Most of our residency programs have regular teaching conferences that medical students on their services are welcome to attend. Please check with the residents on your service or program administrator of the specialty for detailed information of these conferences. Journal articles are also available to medical students.
Your academic performance will be evaluated by the resident(s) and teaching faculty on your service. Evaluation forms developed by your home medical school will be distributed to the resident and attending of your choice by the program administrator of the residency at the end of your rotation. If you are a medical or osteopathic student from a school other than OSU, please have your medical school provide an evaluation form and send it to: Rebecca Nance, Medical Student Coordinator of Medical Education, Mount Carmel West, Medical Staff Building, 3rd Floor, 793 West State Street, Columbus, Ohio 43222.
We are committed to the quality of medical education at Mount Carmel and very interested in your educational and clinical experience on this rotation. We ask that you evaluate the rotation at the end of this clerkship. An evaluation form is included in the packet for your usage. Please complete the program evaluation form and return it to Rebecca Nance at the end of your rotation. We assure you that your feedback will be compiled along with that of other students. Only summary report of the student evaluation will be shared with the specialty services periodically.
We ask you to return your student ID badge along with your rotation evaluation form at the end of the rotation. Once they are returned, we will send your rotation evaluation(s) to your medical school.
In case of illness while you are on this rotation, please contact your student health service or private physician for medical care. If you become ill or injured, you or a family member or friend must contact the attending physician and resident on your service as soon as possible. Please also contact the program administrator of the specialty in Medical Education Department. If you are injured while on duty, you must submit an incident report to Medical Education after you have returned to duty.
In the event of a significant blood or body fluid exposure, you need to notify the resident or attending on your service so that the patient can be asked to be tested. You also need to submit an incident report to Health Services at Mount Carmel and notify the appropriate office at your medical school.
As a medical or osteopathic student on this clinical rotation, you are required to abide by the related Mount Carmel rules, regulations, and policies. You are also required to follow the standards of the clinical service you are on and its support departments.

You are required to wear a Mount Carmel identification badge properly whenever you are on the hospital premises. The badge needs to be worn at the chest level, with your picture and ID clearly visible. Your badge will be issued during the orientation and will expire at the end of the last day of your scheduled rotation.
While on this rotation, you will have 24/7 access to the Mount Carmel Health Science Library, located in the Center for Learning and Education (CLE) building next to the Medical Staff Building at Mount Carmel West.

If you check out reference materials, be sure to return them before the last day of your rotation.
