Our mission is simple: build a healthier community. It’s what we’ve been doing for nearly 130 years, and today we’re doing it in more ways than ever before.


We offer a wide range of Internal Medicine and Surgery Clerkships. Students work under the direct supervision of the attending physician, as well as the resident(s) assigned to the rotation.

The application period for clerkship rotations offered from August 2020 – May 2021 is now closed.

The application period for clerkship rotations offered from August 2022 – May 2023 will begin on February 1, 2022 and close on June 30, 2022. Applications submitted before February 1st will not be accepted, and will need to be re-submitted on or after February 1st for consideration.

Thank you for your interest in our program.
