Clerkship SmartMatch

The Clinical Education staff will establish policies and procedures to adjudicate a system whereby each student will preference their selections of various clerkship training locations and preceptors in a fair manner. As part of the process, students will be surveyed in the second year for their input into desirability of rotation locations and educated on the upcoming process.
