Policy on Grading for ACE Continuity Clinic in the Second 100 Weeks

Students earn a final grade of Pass or Fail or a temporary designation of Conditional Pass in the ACE Continuity Clinic course after completion of the semester-long experience.

Grading Elements:

Each grading element is assigned a grade of Pass or Fail.

  1. Clinical Assessment of Student
  2. Timely completion of evaluations
  3. Attendance

Final Grade: Pass
A final grade of Pass is determined by standards pre-specified by the standard setting committee.

Temporary Designation: Conditional Pass (only applicable in first attempt of a course)
If a student earns a grade of Fail on one or more grading element(s) in the course but the student does not meet criteria to fail the course, as set by the standard setting committee, the student will earn a temporary designation of Conditional Pass and will be required to reassess the grading element(s) that did not meet the passing standard to be eligible for advancement or graduation. For more information on reassessment requirements and procedures, please refer to the Policy on Reassessment.

Final Grade: Fail
In the first attempt of a course, if a student earns a grade of Fail on one or more grading element(s) in the course and the student meets criteria to fail the course, the student will earn a final course grade of Fail and will be required to remediate (repeat and pass) the course to advance to the next year of training. The opportunity to remediate will be subject to the decision of the Student Advancement Committee. In the second attempt of a course, if a student earns a grade of Fail on one or more grading elements, the student will earn a final course grade of Fail and the school's expectation is that the student will be dismissed from the MD program, pending the Student Advancement Committee's recommendation.
