Please strive to support students to complete these mandatory clinical experiences.

Guidelines for UBC Clinical Faculty Completing End of Rotation Evaluations to inlcude comments for the Medical Student Performance Record (MSPR) – The EoR has been changed to allow for separation of the formative comments as guidance for student improvement from summative comments that will become a part of the students’ MSPR for CaRMS residency applications. The purpose of the MSPR Summative Comments is to highlight the unique qualities of the learner. The purpose of this document is to help support clinical faculty in this process. We advise that faculty choose MSPR comments that distinguish this student from others, keeping in mind that these comments will be used externally.
