The clinical years encompass the third and fourth years of medical school where our students continue to develop their clinical skills and accept increased clinical responsibility.
Medical Partnership students rotate across 150 active clinical sites in Northeast Georgia, with nearly 500 clinical faculty.
Students apply the knowledge acquired in their first two years in a clinical setting with patients under the direct supervision of medical professionals. While following a physician in their day-to-day tasks, our students participate in administering patient care while often receiving one-on-one training from their clinical preceptor.
Students meet with the respective Site Clerkship Directors once a week for academic half day. The structure of academic half days varies according to the clerkship, but most include case presentations, lecture and group-style learning. Students wrap-up each clerkship with the National Board of Medical Education Shelf Exam.
