Welcome to DAWN and PAE elective. If you would like to learn more about DAWN Clinic, I would recommend you read the despre DAWN page linked above.

As an MS4 in the PAE elective at DAWN, you will be asked to take on the role of teacher at the clinic. Some of the function you will fill include:

  • Preparing students prior to entering the room with a discussion of interview techniques and physical exam maneuvers pertinent to their case.
  • Discussing the case with students after the encounter.
  • Assisting with SOAP notes to ensure accurate and efficient documentation.
  • Occasionally seeing patients with junior students tofast-trackfollow-up visits.

Please refer the course syllabus on canvas for specific, overall course requirements.

In addition to the course requirements, we ask that PAE students commit to at least 4 sessions at the DAWN Clinic.

If you need to cancel, you are responsible for arranging another PAE student to attend the clinic.

If you have two absences, you will not be allowed to volunteer at DAWN.

You will receive on-site training during your first shift.

Use this google sheet to indicate your availability.

Early shifts are available only to volunteers familiar with DAWN or who have completed at least one prior session as a PAE student.

Please only sign-up for a shift you intend to complete. If you need to reschedule or swap, please do so at least 48 hours before clinic and you are responsible for locating another MS4 to attend. If you have two absences, you will not be allowed to volunteer at DAWN.

At DAWN, we use Practice Fusion for our EMR.

The week before you are scheduled to volunteer, if you do not have a Practice Fusion account, please email hit@dawnclinic.org from your UCDenver account.
