MD Program Medical students earn the Doctor of Medicine degree in a general four-year program designed to be followed by graduate training in a specialty area. During the first two years of the program, students study the sciences basic to medicine—anatomy, behavioral science, biochemistry, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology, and physiology. Clinical correlations to basic material are emphasized, and professional skills are nurtured in a four-semester Introduction to Clinical Practice course continuum. The first of its kind in the country, the School of Medicine leads the way in integrating pioneering applications of ultrasound technology into all four years of medical school. In the third year medical students leave the classroom and enter the hospitals and clinics full-time for hands-on training under the close supervision of faculty. The final two years of the medical curriculum include required clinical clerkships in family medicine, internal medicine, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery.

Best Medical Studies in Doctor of Medicine in North America 2017. After the first 80 weeks of pre-clinical studies, students spend the second 80 weeks of their medical study program in clinical facilities, often called “rotations” or “clerkships”. In the clinical facilities, the students learn by ‘apprenticeship’ to specialists in the various clinical disciplines. By working under close supervision with experts, students learn to treat patients and to acquire the skills of communications, interviewing, history taking, physical examination and medical procedures. This is accomplished in hospital and clinic based models. Rotations are broken down into two sequential components: 48 weeks of prescribed core rotations and 32 weeks of elective rotations. These core and elective clinical full-time rotations focus on the acquisition and maintenance of clinical and professional skills through various medical specialties in affiliated hospitals in many countries including the US, Mexico, UK, Australia and India. Students work directly with physicians and clinical staff in various care service delivery environments conducting physical examinations, history taking, case presentations and laboratory analysis. We appreciate that every country, jurisdiction and medical specialty has different requirements, therefore, we advise students to inquire and adjust their core and elective rotations to reflect those requirements. A student should also be aware that some residencies require a minimum number of clinical weeks in specialty areas in order to apply for a position with their programs. University core and elective requirements represent the minimum number of weeks which IUHS requires for students to qualify for graduation. Required Core... [-]
