Highlights of Level 3 - Advanced Integration

  • Teaching & Research - provide students with basic skills in teaching and evaluation in a "coached" environment, to revisit foundation sciences by teaching or scholarly activity and to reinforce longitudinal integration in the VIC by revisiting foundation sciences with clinical perspective.
  • Additional Time for Career Exploration - Early board exams allows more time to explore different clinical rotations before making the decision to focus on a specialty.
