END OF THE SECOND YEAR

The second year of medical school ends with the Introduction to Clinical Medicine Program. The Clinical Clerkship program begins in the third year. In the first two years of medical school students focus on basic knowledge of health and disease and are introduced to the care of individuals and populations.

THE THIRD AND FOURTH YEARS

In the third and fourth years, students become directly involved in the care and study of patients. They begin towork with team members caring for hospitalized patients. Third year students rotate through the following clerkships: twelve week rotations in Internal Medicine and Surgery; six-week rotations in Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynecology.
