                                      OBJECTIVES
Purpose
The UTMB CLS student is required to meet cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skill) and affective (attitude)
objectives of each preceptorship. This document outlines the cognitive and psychomotor objectives of the
program. A checklist for evaluation of the psychomotor objectives is included in this document. Cognitive goals
are evaluated through the use of study guide questions, which are based on the preceptorship objectives.

Urinalysis Preceptorship Objectives

The student shall have the opportunity to demonstrate the ability to:

I. Automated Urinalysis
    1. perform the analysis of patient urine specimens using the automated system.
    2. perform or verify calibration or standardization of the instrument.
    3. recognize instrument problems and warnings and perform procedures to correct these problems.
    4. following instructor demonstration and using the instrument manual and maintenance manual,
             perform, with minimal supervision, maintenance and troubleshooting procedures assigned by the
             instructor.
    5. following instructor demonstration and using the procedure manual, perform without
             direct assistance, urine sample preparation prior to testing.

II. Physical and Chemical Urine Testing
     1. following instructor demonstration and using the procedure manual, perform without
              direct assistance, urine sample preparation prior to testing.
     2. using the procedure manual, perform without direct assistance assessment of physical
            characteristics of urine.
     3. using the procedure manual, perform without direct assistance, manual chemical
          testing of urine.
     4. using the procedure manual, perform without direct assistance, reducing substance
            testing of urine.

III. Microscopic Urine Exam
     1. using the procedure manual, perform without direct assistance, urine sample
            preparation prior to microscopic examination.
     2. using the procedure manual, perform with minimal supervision, proper adjustment of
            the microscope to be used for microscopic exam.
     3. using the procedure manual, perform with minimal supervision, routine microscopic
           urine exam.

IV. Urine Pregnancy Test
    1. using the procedure manual, perform without direct assistance, urine sample
          preparation prior to pregnancy testing.
    2. using the procedure manual, and following instructor demonstration, perform with
          minimal supervision, pregnancy testing of urine.

                                       CHECKLIST


Institution: ___________________________________ Date Completed: ________________

Name of Student: _______________________ Education Coordinator: _________________


Directions:

1. The student shall be able to present this checklist at all times during the preceptorship.
2. The checklist evaluates the progress toward completion of psychomotor objectives. Please review the
objectives on the web site: http://sahs.utmb.edu/cls/precep.asp
3. Clinical faculty with the student should check the box indicating what the student has accomplished.
4. Only the "white" boxes MUST be completed for a particular test or instrument. The gray boxes may be
checked off but are not required.
5. Use the comment section to write information for the student. Needs improvement or needs to perform more
tests. This area may also be used to indicate a test performed in a specific laboratory but using a different
method or technique or that the procedure is not performed in the specific laboratory.
6. The student is responsible for handing in the completed checklists to the education coordinator for the area.
The education coordinator is responsible for sending these forms to the Preceptorship Coordinator.
