CARL software provides an intuitive experience for recording all Hospital, Preceptor, and Medical Student credentials associated with the clinical education experience. CARL remembers all the details and secures information from the candidates entire clinical education history.
The Clinical Activity Rotation Log, or CARL, is designed to be an innovative tool for tracking clinical
notes. CARL will enhance the medical education and student experience beyond all traditional means of note taking, according to its developers.
Lead programmer for CARL, Richard Levy said about the student process between clinical rotation and residency, “CARL brings structure to a non-structured environment.”
The students at the American University of Integrative Sciences were the first to experience the new technology approach provided by CARL, according to Ian Daniels, AUIS director of admissions. CARL gives the medical student a means with which to evaluate their learning and to access built-in reference materials used in the medical licensing exam. Created by a team of engineers, CARL provides three levels of communication among the medical student, preceptor, clinical dean and the medical university; therefore, it keeps each user engaged in the learning process and clerkship experience.
