DO Clerkships

Clerkships are required rotations and electives that cover assigned medical specialty areas to assure that every student obtains the core experience needed to become a well-trained osteopathic generalist.


Clerkships are clinical rotations during the third and fourth year of medical school. More elective rotations are available in the fourth year. Students are afforded the ability to practice medicine in specialty areas under the supervision of physicians and will be expected to integrate osteopathic principles and practice into patient care delivery.
