The Clinical Years consist of five terms for a total of 80 weeks.
This listing does not indicate the sequence of clinical courses. The core rotation schedules are determined by the hospital at the time students are admitted into the clinical program. In general, students complete their core rotations before doing additional requirements and electives. Electives listed above are examples of the many options available. Elective choices and schedules are arranged individually by students, in consultation with the hospital administration.
Hospitals have the option of requiring students to attend an orientation. This orientation can last up to a week and is a non-credit experience. Clinical rotations in the United Kingdom begin in January, July, and October.
Calendar is subject to change.
Selectives are offered to basic sciences students during the first two years of the four-year medical program. The objective is to provide a structured learning experience in diverse clinical and scholarly areas. They give students the opportunity to integrate basic sciences knowledge into clinical areas and may provide a transition into clinical medicine. Selectives are offered by various departments and coordinated through the Office of the Dean of Basic Sciences. There is a cost associated with some of the selectives.
