Clinical Years (Med III & IV)

Med III and IV correspond to clinical clerkships in healthcare facilities, mainly the LAU University Medical Center-Rizk Hospital (LAUMC-RH). In Medicine Year III, students will rotate in seven core clerkships, while in Year IV, they will have a more flexible schedule with elective and selective rotations. Integration of basic and clinical sciences will be ensured through common class activities on a weekly basis. At the end of the clinical years, students will be able to perform with proficiency and demonstrate mastery of core competencies, which constitute the cornerstone of the clinical curriculum. These include:


Teaching during the clinical years will depend on patient encounters and interaction with the healthcare team. Small and large group teaching, case discussions, rounds, tutorials, problem-based learning, practice on simulation models, bed-side teaching, outpatient clinics, journal clubs, in addition to other teaching activities will be offered to students during their clinical rotations.
