Advanced Clinical Rotations (ACR)

Students are required to take a sub-internship, a critical care selective, and two electives from the SOM’s catalog. Sub-internship and critical care selection will be taken either during the ACR time frame or the beginning of the Phase 3 calendar year.

Activities that will be part of a student’s Phase 3 Plan can begin during Advanced Clinical Rotations. For example, a student can begin intensive research work immediately after finishing clerkships and taking Step 1.
