Moving beyond the red book
Currently, many 3rd & 4th year medical students around the US are required to document the skills they learn on rotations in a little red book called the "clinical skills log".
The Clinical Skills Log app intends to replace this book and go beyond it by providing a digital record that is fast and convenient for both the student and the teacher.
- View each rotation's suggested skills with the tap of a button.
- See how many skills remain to be completed
- Sign and lock completed skills
- Save information to iCloud for safe keeping
- Quickly view which skills still have to be completed and signed
- Export individual task reports and complete task report to PDF
As more students begin to use CSL and I receive more feedback about what is helpful, I may add more features that focus on communication and collaboration. Here are some ideas.
- Messaging between users
- Faculty version that has admin control & a dashboard to see where students are progressing or lagging behind.
- Physician version with signature feature so student can message a completed task to the physician and have them sign and provide feedback directly within the app.
- Note taking for each skill or task
- Ability to add your own list of tasks with categories, notes, deadlines, and other information.
- iPhone & iPad support
