* Selective course offerings varies by trimester

** It is a common practice in medical education to refer students in clinical training as being in clinical “clerkship.” The intent of clinical clerkship is to teach students the fundamentals of clinical examination, evaluation, and care provision. It encompasses a period of medical education in which students interact with real patients under the supervision of licensed health specialists. The terms “intern” and “internship” are currently used in association to our clinical students and training programs. An “intern” typically refers to a person already graduated in a professional field. In order to provide our clinical students and faculty with the most accurate representation of their roles, changes to terminology used in our clinical programs are being phased in over time.
