Medical Students

Medical Clerkships

Four-week medical student clerkships are offered to third- and fourth-year medical students. The clerkship exposes students to the full breadth of the residency training experience, including morning rounds, surgical cases and clinical conferences. Although not required, students benefit from taking in-house call with the resident on call, where they are exposed to emergent as well as routine admissions and surgical procedures.

Students are expected to deliver a presentation at our grand rounds at the conclusion of their clerkship on a topic of their choosing. Clerkships are available both at North Shore University Hospital and at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
