Advanced Studies

Advanced Studies begin in the spring of the third academic year, following completion of the Core Clinical Experiences. Scheduled to launch in May, 2013, this fourth year curriculum balances required and elective time to support students’ personal and professional development. In addition to the Sub-Internship, 24 weeks of electives, and the Transition to Internship program requirements, three new courses have been created that will occur during the Advanced Studies year: Emergency Clinical Problem Solver, Advanced Biomedical and Translational Sciences, and the Capstone course. The longitudinal Capstone Course is a graduation requirement of students entering the School of Medicine in 2012 or later.
