Introduction
The Senior Clerkship Program is under the direction of the OSU-CHS College of Osteopathic Medicine.

The program is directed by individual clinical departments and the Office of Clinical Education of OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, and is designed to provide the student with education and primary care training in the areas of:

  • Internal Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Obstetrics and Gynecology
  • Pediatrics
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Family Medicine
  • Psychiatry

The program is organized to permit the greatest degree of education exposure in a practical clinical environment to develop skills in the areas of patient diagnosis and management. 

The Clerkship Program will be divided into a sequence of 22 one-month clerkship rotations, including up to 2 one-month vacation periods. 

Each student will be assigned required clerkship rotations by the Office of Clinical Education.  The College reserves the right to make supervising physician and/or site changes when necessary.  Each rotation is one month of actual clinical experience.
