The Student Clerkship Manual outlines policies for OMS III and OMS IV students completing required Clerkships and Electives during the clinical education phase of the Osteopathic Medicine program. Students are expected to abide by the policies listed in the Student Clerkship Manual, in conjunction with the 2023-2024 Catalog and Student Handbook, throughout the completion of clinical rotations.
This manual may be amended from time to time and that CHSU-College of Osteopathic Medicine reserves the right to revise its policies in accordance with the law. Any changes made to the Clerkship Manual will be posted as an addendum. The information contained in the Student Clerkship Manual applies to the 2023-2024 academic year.
Clinical Education Coordinators
CHSU Clinical Clerkship Coordinators are the initial point of contact for all matters pertaining to clinical education and responsible for scheduling and coordinating core clerkships. The coordinators are primarily available to assist students in navigating clerkship logistics and are available to students preferably by email or by telephone during regular University business hours. Students may schedule an in-person meeting by appointment. To protect students’ privacy, the Clinical Education Department communicates information directly with the medical student, and therefore not to spouses, parents, etc.
Anne M. VanGarsse, MD, CPE, FAAP, CHCEF is the Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs, Community Engagement and Population Health and responsible for overseeing daily office functions, office personnel, affiliation agreements, directing programs and activities for the Department of Clinical Affairs.
