School of Medicine Greenville

  • Medical student examining patient's ear with auriscope.

Fourth Year Curriculum (M4)

In the fourth year, you will identify a residency program interest and be placed into a specialty-specific track. This track meets the year four requirement for an acting internship and exposure to either intensive care or emergency medicine.

What is the M4 year like?

A group of specialty advisors will counsel you about your residency interest and provide a curated menu of electives for your rotations (12 weeks of total opportunities).

To prepare for residency training, you will also complete a separate intensification experience at the end of your M4 year, which includes two weeks of core clinical skills, procedures practice and competency assessment. It also includes two weeks of specialty-focused training, such as knot tying, instrument identification and suturing for surgery.
