Aureus University School of Medicine makes the necessary arrangements for our students to do clinical clerkships in the United States, India or Canada at ACGME accredited teaching hospitals. 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 centre for our core and elective curricula.
Transfer students from accredited medical schools are welcome to apply for clinical rotations with Aureus University. Aureus University requires that all students who wish to do their clinical rotations must attend the USMLE review program and pass CBSE (Comprehensive Basic Science Examination). Successful passing of USMLE Step 1 Exam is required. CBSE is waived for transfer students who have already passed USMLE Step 1 examination. Students are advised to inform the administration, at least two weeks prior to commencement of the program, of their intent to begin clinical rotations with Aureus University. Presently, rotations are available in Maryland, Illinois, Georgia, Indiana, Washington, DC, India, Canada and the Caribbean. Electives are also available in New York.
