Completing Requirements and Preparing for Residency

Students must complete the core clerkships covered by USMLE Step 2 by fall of fourth year.

The curriculum has been designed to provide students more flexibility for residency interviews and electives, including a new fourth year elective in anatomy that includes cadaveric dissection tailored to the individual needs of students hoping to match into a surgical discipline. Additionally, revisions to our Learning to Teach: Teaching to Learn course content and scheduling improves our students’ transition to residency.
