UWSOM Second Year Course Descriptions

Third and Fourth Year

At the conclusion of the first two years, students enter the predominantly clinical phase of their education. During this phase, students receive a portion of their training at the University of Washington School of Medicine and a portion, known as the "community phase," from physicians in smaller communities in the five WWAMI states. The goal of the community phase clerkships is to give students an opportunity to learn about the spectrum of illnesses that exists in nonmetropolitan areas and the methods of practice used by rural physicians. Third year clerkships are available in pediatrics, obstetrics-gynecology, psychiatry, family medicine, internal medicine, and surgery in a number of locations throughout the WWAMI region.
