  2. Perform appropriate patient exam for the presenting problem/reason for visit.
  3. Generate an appropriate problem-based differential diagnosis and plan.
  4. Follow through on the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic action plan.
  5. Communicate patient information to the clinical team in oral form.
  6. Communicate patient information to the clinical team in written form.
  7. Communicate effectively with patients of diverse backgrounds (e.g. age, gender, social, racial and economic backgrounds).
  8. Demonstrate a commitment to self-directed learning by developing your knowledge outside of the traditional learning environment (e.g. demonstrate ability to retrieve and cite evidence from reliable references to advance patient care).
  9. Collaborate with an inter-professional health care team (i.e. communicate with nurses, respiratory therapist, social workers, pharmacist, primary care physician, etc.).
  10. Demonstrate professional behavior in clinical setting (e.g. appearance, reliability, punctuality, motivation, commitment, and respect).
