Client's Daily Notes
THERE IS NO OBLIGATION FOR YOU TO FILL OUT THESE DAILY NOTES
These forms are provided to help you keep track of your clinics but you
can use or not use as works best for you.
Clients will be seeing 2-3 different clinics, so it can become difficult
to remember which clinic asked for a certain test, which clinic promised to
provide further information, who said or did what, etc.
Jotting down a few notes after each visit will help to keep your
responses to each clinic consistent during following visits and will help
when it is time, at the end of the DC, to complete your evaluation.
The forms are provided so that you can make notes during and after your
interactions with each student clinic.
- The daily forms will be provided in your DC Client Handbook or you
can download below.
- Note that there is a form for each day of the DC exercise.
- Likewise, you should have one set of forms for each of your
- In other words, there is a specific page to write on each time you
meet with a group.
- The student photo sheets provided in the notebook are another great place to keep notes, especially on individual students.
Examples of daily notations:
"greeted me personally and seemed concerned about my
"asked to take a radiograph"
"seemed reluctant to answer my question about vomiting"
"very sympathetic regarding the recent death of my mother"
"explained the results of the blood test, but did not show me the numbers"
"talked about the X-ray, but did not show me the picture and point out what
they were talking about"
"used too many scientific words"
"will let me know how the blood test comes out"
"used some humor to lighten the situation"
"offered me a tissue when I started to cry"
"Sally has not made one comment during any of our visits"
Student Photo Sheets
In addition to the Daily Notes forms, each client will receive a Student
Photo Sheet for each clinic assigned to their case. These sheets feature
color photos of the students assigned to your case. There is space next to
each photo for you to make notes about that student if you like.
There are usually 5 students per clinic and clients usually work with 2 or 3
clinics. The Student Photo sheet is another way for you to get to know your
students. You can use it to put names to faces, write down initial
impressions, and record your interactions with each student. At the end of
the initial interview on Day 1, some clients like to ask each student to
write something about themselves on a copy of the Student Photo Sheet. This
is just one more way to remember names and get to know each student a bit
