Specific Notes: 1. Advanced Clinical Rotations—includes a Neuroscience Rotation (Neurology, Neurosurgery or Pediatric Neurology) for students not previously completing neurology. Also includes 2 Sub-Internships (one medical, one surgical) for all students and an Emergency Medicine rotation (if not already done). 2. Step II CK to be completed between April & Sept of MS-IV year; Step II CS to be completed NLT Nov of MS-IV year. 3. Military Contingency Medicine –Includes Operation Bushmaster 4. Capstone Projects are expected to require a minimum of 3 months to complete, however different projects/tracks may have unique requirements. Depending on student interests and/or the type of Capstone Project, work may start earlier (i.e. as early as the MS-I/II year) and proceed in a contiguous or non-contiguous (i.e. asynchronous) time frame. Regardless of the Capstone Project, all 6 students will average at least 8 hrs of patient care activities/wk.
