This is for all who are either doing their clerkships, getting ready to do them or have already completed the clerkships. My question is this: How does one go about setting up clerkships at a given hospital? How competitive/hard is it for visiting medical students to set up clerkships at another university based hospital? I will be attending TUCOM next year but wanted to get a heads up on suggestions/reality check on trying to set up clerkships(when the time comes) at UCSF or Stanford? Do I even have a chance? Thanks for your suggestions in advance.
