M1s to Remediate Foundations Plenary IRATs

M1s to Remediate Foundations Plenary IRATs

CHICAGO – In a surprise move by the Office of Medical Education, over half of the M1 class will be expected to remediate the plenary IRAT quizzes from the recently completed Foundations unit.

Following the first Synthesis and Application Module last week, the Deans notified students by email that they would need to evaluate their understanding of the material covered in the IRATs. Some students will be asked to re-take quizzes from various plenary sessions during the 14-week Foundations unit.

“Some people simply didn’t answer all the IRAT questions,” said one Dean. “Maybe they were having clicker problems, we’re not sure. Other students were clearly answering ‘B’ for every question.”

The Office of Medical Education said the new decision is meant to reinforce the necessity of the IRATs.

The Feinberg Flipside conducted a poll by clicker to determine the number of students who will remediate the IRATs this week. However, the poll only received a total response rate of 137.
