    Where are clinicals done?

    I am currently preparing to apply to medical school next summer and I am curious how clerkships/clinicals work.

    Early entry into clerkships

    Hi all, I'm extremely happy about the school that I got accepted to. The school has a curriculum where we start our clerkships after a year and a half. I'm interested in what people people's opinion of this. Do the benefits of starting the rotations early out-weight the risk of cutting down...

    MD Clinical Rotation Order w/Ob/Gyn Interest

    I'm currently an MS2 and am trying to plan ahead for third year. We have the option of doing one, several, or even all core clerkships in other cities around the state. My question is: from a residency application perspective, would it make me more competitive if I completed my clerkships in...

    Chances of matching into an academic Ob/gyn program

    Hello everyone. So I've seen quite a few people posting about their chances of matching into their desired specialty but I haven't quite seen someone in my situation. So I come from a pretty small medical school in the midwest, not top 40. I got a 224 on the USMLE Step 1 in June of 2017...

    Residency Competitiveness

    How concerning is it to residency programs if clerkship grades are all passes (school is 25H/50HP/25P and haven't gotten my obgyn grade back yet)? My comments are good to average but I always end up missing HP by 1-2 points. Otherwise, slightly above avg step score and no publications with...
