Abstract—

Objective evaluation of medical student clinical skills is difficult. In this study, medical students and neurology faculty independently completed a form on new clinic patients documenting anatomic localization, diagnosis, diagnostic tests, and management. We found students and faculty agreed significantly more often in anatomic lesion location and diagnosis than in ordering diagnostic tests or planning optimal treatment. This form improved student clinical competency assessment and enhanced teaching in clinics.
