Preparing for residency requires an opportunity to participate in patient care with an increased level of responsibility. To do this, our students have advanced clinical training in core specialties such as Emergency Medicine, Surgery, Medicine, and Critical Care as well as elective time to explore areas based on career interest.
Advanced Clinical training continues in the third and fourth year. During this period, students have the opportunity to explore electives from over 125 areas while also completing further required core clinical training in the following programs.
Advanced Clinical Rotations
•Musculoskeletal Core Rotation
•Emergency Medicine Core Rotation
•Critical Care Medicine Core Rotation
•Electives (Over 125 clinical electives to choose from)
For more information, refer to the complete list of course descriptions in the Advanced Clinical Rotations.
The advanced clinical training program is supplemented by two Practice Courses, which meet once a week, and Capstone.
