During the 12 months of the Principal Clinical Experience, students rotate through eight core clerkships at their assigned clinical sites. Throughout their clerkships, students have opportunities to immerse themselves within the various specialties. Career exploration can help students narrow down their specialty interests to a few choices.
Individual Career Advising
Each student in the PCE is assigned to a hospital-based mentor. Students continue to meet with their assigned society advisors, who can assist them through their goals and the guidelines of the AAMC Careers in Medicine career planning program. HST students have a formal advising meeting twice during their PCE.
