Medical students in nine core clinical clerkships use Patient Tracker to log patient encounters. Data can be entered on the website from a desktop computer or a mobile device. By logging encounters, students track their progress related to the clerkship's learning objectives.

Clerkship directors use the data to compare site and learning experiences and adjust the clerkship for future students. This data is reviewed not only in each department, but across the entire curriculum, and by national medical school accreditation bodies such as the LCME.
