In first and second year, students spend about one day a week in a clinical setting, learning interviewing skills, physical diagnosis, and how to interact with patients.


Student Comments:

"My interest is emergency medicine and the Boston Medical Center is the best spot in the city – maybe in the country – for ER experience."
– Fourth year student

 

"Being able to interact with patients right in your first year is an incredible experience. A lot of schools have actors come in and pretend to be patients. Here you get to actually interview and learn physical exams while helping real people."
– Second year student
