Clinical Sciences

During the clinical portion of AUC's medical program, students perform as an active member of a team comprised of students, residents, and attending physicians. Under supervision, clinical students perform histories and physicals, evaluate laboratory data, analyze information to diagnose patient cases, and undertake limited procedures.

Clinical Rotation and Coursework

Medical students complete their clinical training during semesters 6 through 9.5. AUC students undertake core and elective clinical rotations for 72 weeks at AUC’s affiliated clinical sites in the United States and United Kingdom. The clinical rotations provide students with the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned during their Medical Sciences coursework, and also likely discover the area of medicine that they are most passionate about.

Preparing for Clinical Rotations

US core clerkships are completed at affiliated hospitals that sponsor or participate in Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs. Each clinical site is staffed by a program director, faculty members and a medical education coordinator who work together to facilitate the learning experience for AUC students. Additionally, AUC’s Office of Clinical Student Affairs is available to assist students at any point during their clinical rotations.
