    (1) Observation
    A student must be able to participate in learning situations that require observation skills. In particular, a student must be able to accurately observe a patient and acquire visual, auditory and tactile information.

    (2) Communication
    A student must be able to speak, to hear, and to observe patients in order to effectively and efficiently elicit information, describe mood, activity and posture, and perceive non-verbal communication. A student must be able to communicate effectively and sensitively with patients, families and all other members of the health care team. A student must also be able to coherently summarize a patient’s condition and management plan verbally and in writing.

    (3) Motor
    A student must demonstrate sufficient motor function to safely perform a physical examination on a patient, including palpation, auscultation and percussion. The examination must be done independently and in a timely fashion. A student must be able to use common diagnostic aids or instruments, either directly or in an adaptive form (e.g., ophthalmoscope, otoscope, sphygmomanometer, stethoscope). A student must be able to execute motor movements reasonably required to provide general and emergency medical care to patients.

    (4) Intellectual-Conceptual, Integrative, and Quantitative Abilities
    A student must demonstrate the cognitive skills and memory necessary to measure, calculate, and reason in order to analyze, integrate and synthesize information. In addition, the student must be able to comprehend dimensional and spatial relationships. All of these problem-solving activities must be done in a timely fashion.

    (5) Behavioral and Social Attributes
    A student must consistently demonstrate the emotional health required for full utilization of her or his intellectual abilities. The application of good judgement and the prompt completion of all responsibilities attendant to the diagnosis and care of patients are necessary. The development of mature, sensitive, and effective relationships with patients, families and other members of the health care team are also required. The student must be able to tolerate the physical, emotional, and mental demands of the studying medicine and function effectively under stress. Adaptability to changing environments and the ability to function in the face of uncertainties that are inherent in the care of patients are both necessary.
