The MD-PhD student will participate as an active member of the designated inpatient and/or outpatient service, participating in appropriate clinical cases at YNHH and/or the VA. The preceptor and student will submit specialty specific learning objectives to Dr. Cohn. The student will attend regularly scheduled specialty conferences (to be determined by the student and his/her clinic preceptor). Assignment may be made weekly, twice monthly, or monthly or as determined by the student and clinical preceptor (as long as clinical contact occurs on a monthly basis at minimum). The student is expected to determine feasibility of participation in the context of graduate studies and laboratory responsibilities.
