Longitudinal Clinical Experience»

Students are directly involved in patient care from the beginning of medical school. The main goals of the LCE are to have students work together as a team for an extended period of time caring for patients under the guidance of healthcare faculty.


Clinical Clerkships»

A remodeled clerkship year begins earlier in the curriculum; includes integration across disciplines; provides opportunities for greater continuity for patients, teams and mentorship; and allows students the flexibility to explore career interests during "selectives."

Advanced Training Period»

The final months of medical school offer substantial flexibility for students to clarify their career choices, gain additional clinical experience through electives and sub-internships, participate in research, complete their thesis, prepare for boards, and apply for residency.
