Students are assigned to a core clerkship site for their clinical training. The core curriculum for the third year includes Behavioral Medicine, Internal Medicine (2), Obstetrics/Gynecology, General Surgery, Pediatrics, Family Medicine and Rural Health. The remainder of the year is designated for elective clerkships for students to personalize their clinical training. The fourth-year curriculum is intended to build on the foundational experience provided in the third year. These experiences are in settings where more demands for independence can be expected of the senior medical student. Students will complete clerkships in Emergency Medicine and Hospice/Palliative Care. Numerous electives allow students to travel to locations that offer them the opportunity to develop residency training applications for a successful transition to graduate medical education.
