    LOG IN:

    SPEL logs (Student Patient Encounter Logs) — Students log a number of patient encounters. This number varies based on the clerkship.

    Procedure Logs — Students must complete a list of procedures by the time they complete the third year. They log these procedures on One45 after their preceptor signs off that that the student witnessed or completed the procedure.

    Evaluations (Student, Clerkship, Faculty) — A large portion of the clerkship grade depends on the preceptor's evaluation of the student's rotation spent with them. Students are also given the opportunity to evaluate the clerkship, clerkship director and their preceptors at the end of the rotation.

  • Letters of Recommendation

    Thank you for taking time to write letters of recommendation for students applying for residency programs. The letters of recommendation are looked at seriously in the program's evaluation of students. The Office of Clinical Sciences is happy to assist with this process as we understand the requirements that programs have for the letters.

     It is very important that you include the following in all letters written for students:

    1. A statement in the first line of the letter that the "student has waived the right to see this letter"- Even though we have the waiver form , this statement must be included in the body of the letter. Letters that programs know students have not seen have more weight in the evaluation process.
    2. Please include your academic title, with your signature- Most of you are either a clinical assistant or associate professor – if you are not sure please check with Jeanette Bowman in the Clerkship office
    3. Please include your practice contact information, particularly if you are using the Medical Partnership Letterhead. Programs need to see your contact information in addition to your signature

    Letter writers are now required to upload the letters directly through the ERAS Letter of Recommendation Portal (LoRP).


    Your letter should be on the AU/UGA Medical Partnership letterhead which you can obtain from your clerkship director. It is very important for you to include your contact information with your signature. 

    Addressed to: Dear Residency Director
