Portfolio Assignments- UIC COM sign now

Dear Dean Sandlow:

We are submitting a petition regarding the вPortfolio Assignmentsв. We understand that your aim was to provide us with a method of self-reflection and a medium through which to communicate with our advisors. However, the majority of us feel that these assignments are not conducive to our Medical Education. We feel that the efforts required to document responses online that, to date, may or may not have been read and commented on by our advisors, is not an effective introspective or feedback method. Given our other academic and clinical requirements, we feel that requiring faculty and students to participate in the program is a restriction of precious learning time without offering formative educational experiences or effective mentorship from advisors. Therefore, we kindly request that the вPortfolio Assignmentв NOT be a requirement in our curriculum.

Nevertheless, because individuals who value this opportunity exist, we strongly support voluntary participation.

Thank you for attention.

UIC College of Medicine

Class of 2009

    I personally did not feel that I benefitted from the portfolio exercise during M1 year. Now with the evaluations and other requirements that need to be met for each clerkship, I am even less enthusiastic about the portfolio and really do not have the ener

    The portfolio should only be an option that facilitates communication between the student and the advisor. A face-to-face meeting with an advisor is better and more informative than any essay can ever be, just as a face-to-face interview with a patient is

    I would just like to express my disklike for the portfolio system. It does not contribute to our medical education in any way and is more a nuisance than anything to our already demanding curriculum.
