Advanced Studies begin in the spring of the third academic year, following completion of the Core Clinical Experiences. Launched in May 2013, this fourth year curriculum balances required and elective time to support students’ personal and professional development. In addition to the Sub-Internships, 24 weeks of electives, and the Transition to Internship program requirements; the Advanced Studies year includes three courses: Emergency Clinical Problem Solver, Advanced Biomedical and Translational Sciences, and the Capstone Scholarship & Discovery course. The longitudinal Capstone Course is a graduation requirement of students entering the School of Medicine in 2012 or later.
