Chair: Larry B. Goldstein, MD, FANA

Colleges of Medicine can have or are developing regional campuses that provide clinical training for their own medical students that are separate from clerkships at the primary site.  Yet, regional campuses are part of a single medical school with the LCME requiring equivalent experiences, regardless of the campus.  This requires Departments of Neurology develop processes for overseeing medical student education across campuses to assure this requirement is met.  This can be particularly challenging when neurological expertise at regional campuses is limited or non-existent.

Learning Objectives:

1. Be able to discuss LCME educational requirements for Neurology clerkships
2. Be able to develop strategies to meet LCME requirements based on practical examples
3.  Be prepared to address educational challenges to Neurology clerkships when Colleges of Medicine expand regional campuses

Effective Multi-Campus Clerkships in Neurology

Speaker: Catherine Ikard, MD

This session will focus on building a successful branch campus curriculum in Neurology, with an emphasis on recruitment of students to the field and adapting the format across multiple site models — including private practice preceptors. 

LCME considerations for Neurology Clerkships at Regional Medical Campuses

Speaker: Kimberly Jones, MD

Regional Medical Campuses have become vital for building the future healthcare workforce. We will discuss complexities of building Neurology Clerkships at multiple clinical sites, with particular focus on accreditation requirements from the Liason Committee on Medical Education (LCME).
