Process for Pre-Clerkship Content Development & Review (10 Jan 2013)
Restructuring of the Clerkship period involved several innovations in our curriculum:
The Post-Clerkship phase is taking shape. Exciting developments include:
Bench to Bedside and Beyond. This 8 week period of instruction will mirror the modular construct of the Pre-Clerkship. Students will be challenged to incorporate advanced clinical and basic science concepts as they continue to learn to care for those in harm's way.
Capstone Project. A cohort of students in the Class of 2015 will be selected to perform a longitudinal project of advanced scientific inquiry. These projects will include basic (bench) research, clinical projects, performance improvement projects, operational studies and other public health projects.
Advanced Electives. Students will continue to have opportunities to participate in advanced elective opportunities to further explore areas of medicine where they intend to practice.
Required Elements. Students will be required to perform one sub-internship in a surgical discipline (e.g. General Surgery; Ob/Gyn; Orthopedics, Urology, ENT) and one in a medical discipline (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics). Students will also be required to complete an elective in a surgical discipline and a medical discipline (making a total of four blocks between sub-I/elective in medical/surgical experiences). Students are also encouraged to complete an elective in behavioral health.
