Module and Clerkship Directors are key educators in the College of Medicine playing an important role in the education of medical students. Module Directors solicit the participation, input and ideas of the module and medical school faculty regarding module design, content and issues, and are responsible for making final decisions/recommendations with respect to the module. Clerkship Directors are responsible for designing, developing and administering the clerkship, sub-internship, and/or elective(s) as assigned, including all related inpatient and ambulatory clinical experiences at various clinical sites.
