Practice of Clinical Medicine

Throughout the first 18 months of medical school, students participate in the Practice of Clinical Medicine (PCM) course, which teaches basic clinical skills such as professionalism, medical interviewing, physical diagnosis and clinical reasoning. Thanks to our alumni and community physicians, PCM gives preclinical students the opportunity to interact with patients, putting newly gained knowledge into practical use in clinical settings.

Designed to correlate with the basic science coursework, PCM consists of hands-on learning in small groups, simulated patient workshops and a community preceptorship.
