Help Keep Site Visit Costs Down
If there is one thing program directors are concerned about regarding their site visit, it is the costs involved. CoAEMSP does what it can to keep costs down; however, our site visitors play a big role in this, too!
An email confirmation of the site visit is sent to site visitors at least 4 to 6 weeks in advance, with instructions to begin making travel arrangements. However, too many site visitors are waiting until the last minute, which results in higher air fares.
CoAEMSP appreciates the time you give and the expertise you share; without your knowledge and experience, CoAEMSP would not be the strong organization it is. As a valued volunteer, you are asked to book your airline ticket as soon as you receive the confirmation email with the program director's contact information.
Thank you for your understanding.
Standard: III.B.1.a.1) Program Director Responsibilities
The program director must be responsible for all aspects of the program, including, but not limited to:
1) the administration, organization, and supervision of the educational program.
- Purposes of the student rotation (minimum competencies, skills, and behaviors)
- Evaluation tools used by the program
- Criteria of evaluation for grading students
- Contact information for the program
The training media may take many forms: written documents, formal course, power point presentation, video, on-line, or there could be designated trainers on-site that the program relies on. The program should tailor the method of delivery to the type of rotation (e.g. hospital, physician office, field).
The program must demonstrate that each field internship preceptor has completed the training. For example, there may be an on-line session documenting completion by the preceptor, or there may be a written packet provided by the program, which is read and signed by the preceptor at the start of the rotation, or a representative of the program may meet briefly with the potential preceptors at that location.
There must be an orientation offered for at least key hospital and other clinical experience personnel. The program can then arrange to have those key personnel provide guidance to other hospital preceptors, if needed.
The program must provide evidence of the completion of the training of field internship preceptors by dated rosters of participants, on-line logs, signed acknowledgment by the field internship preceptor.
Standards Interpretations Approved|
The CoAEMSP Board approved more interpretations of the CAAHEP Standards at its most recent Board meeting, including: Medical Director responsibilities, curriculum, resource assessment, student evaluations and graduate assessment, and more!
