Vermont Integrated Curriculum
Level 2 - Clinical Clerkships
Level 2 consists of core clerkships emphasizing the basic principles of clinical medicine, including primary and preventive care while building clinical skills for students through daily care of patients within different medical specialties in both ambulatory and hospital environments.
The Clerkship Year is designed to build on competencies acquired in Foundations to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for clinical care and decision-making in a variety of medical settings. The year is composed of seven clerkships which are departmental-based and provide clinical experiences supported by structured educational programs, and a four-week longitudinal Bridge Clerkship. All clerkships are completed under the supervision of UVM College of Medicine faculty at an approved clinical site. Upon completion of this level, students complete a summative clinical skills exam.
