Clerkship (Year 3)

The third and final year of medical school is the Clinical Clerkship. 

While in clerkship, students will:

Reinforce and apply the knowledge

learned in the first two years, and will develop their clinical skills so they can diagnose and manage common clinical problems.

Evaluate patients and manage their medical problem

by conducting a comprehensive medical history and thorough physical examination; formulate accurate hypotheses as to the causes and solution of their clinical problems; and formulate and implement a management plan to effectively deal with the problems.

Demonstrate the fundamental concepts

of disease prevention and health promotion for individual patients and incorporate them into treatments plans as appropriate.

Communicate and interact

effectively with patients, families, medical staff and others involved in the delivery of health services. During this time students will accept increasing responsibility in patient care as the final year advances.

Work with multi-disciplinary clinical teams

of nurses, physiotherapists, residents and faculty.

Develop and apply high ethical principles and stan

in all aspects of medical practice and will exhibit appropriate personal and interpersonal professional behaviors.

In the clerkship, as in the whole of the curriculum, it will be clear that the physician can serve patients to the highest possible standards only if he/she continually acquires new knowledge and skills for as long as he/she practices medicine.
