Fourth Year:

  • Required clerkships:
  • Emergency Medicine

    • Introduction to Detoxification and Rehabilitation Programs for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse: An introduction to alcohol and drug detoxification/rehabilitation with supervised clinical experiences in a variety of addiction treatment programs.

Capstone

Capstone is a required, four-day course taught primarily in a small group and workshop format. It is designed as a “Continuing Medical Education” course, in which fourth-year students (graduating in April of the current year) choose sessions to attend relating to the medical issues, evaluation, management and procedures involved in their planned specialties.

In the suture workshop with Dr. Hall, students practice sutures on pig feet.
