Abstract

This article describes a computerized performance support system, the Clerkship Learning Expert and Resource Consultant (CLERC), developed to improve the quality and consistency of learning available to medical students in a third-year family practice clerkship. CLERC is an integrated computer system with an interactive knowledge base, software applications, literature search capabilities, and clinical diagnostic software programs. Medical students enrolled in a third-year family practice clerkship use CLERC to access up-to-date clinical information and to complete clerkship assignments.
