Clerkships predominantly take place in the United States and Canada. Students who complete their Basic Sciences and pass CBSE followed by successful completion of USMLE step 1 Exam will be placed in clinical rotations. Our focus will be on obtaining and maintaining high quality clinical centres for our core and elective curricula.
