School of Medicine Greenville


The clerkship phase allows students to put their pre-clerkship knowledge and skills into practice as they enter the clinical learning environment and become an active member of the healthcare team.

What is the Clerkship Phase about?

In core clerkships, students continue to develop their clinical skills and accept increased clinical responsibility. Students rotate through inpatient and outpatient experiences in various clinical areas including Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry/Neurology, and Surgery. Additional electives are available for career exploration and learning.  

Assessment during the clerkship phase includes faculty and residency evaluations, clerkship-specific objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) or oral exams, and subject exams. 
Integrated Practice of Medicine 3 is designed to facilitate the student’s transition to the real world of health care delivery as practicing professionals.  Buidling on clinical experiences in third-year clerkships, students discuss the importance and application of topics such as quality and safety, medical-legal issues, advanced diagnostics, the business of medicine, and medical practice in the context of societal challenges. Proficiency in basic and advanced procedural skills is also integrated into the course.
