The Clinical Applications phase, which is 12 months in duration, provides students with extensive clinical learning experiences in six of the core disciplines of medicine. In these clinical experiences, students begin to apply the knowledge and skills learned from the first phase toward formally caring for patients in both the hospital and ambulatory clinic settings. Clinical rotations range from 6-12 weeks in length over the course of Phase 2.
Phase 2 begins with Acute Care and Clinical Transitions, a four-week block, that is followed by the six required clinical clerkships. We schedule clerkships via a lottery system and students will be given the opportunity to give input as to the order they wish to complete these clerkships.
