Clinical Clerkships

The Heart of Professional Development

by Ways, Peter O.; Engel, John D.; Finkelstein, Peter


A medical student's clinical clekship is characterized among other things by long hours, insufficient sleep, daily frustrations, and emotional burdens. It will be not only a defining professional experience, but a rewarding life experience. Clinical Clerkships takes the third or fourth year student through the unstated curriculum of the clerkship to address those difficulties not often discussed by deans, educators, practitioners, professors, or lab assistants. Through practical discussion and germane vignettes, the authors not only describe the difficult issues involved in clerkship, they also provide solutions and stimulate discussion.
