Saint James School of Medicine prepares students for their clinical rotations with our introductory program Advanced Introduction to Clinical Medicine.
This is a 16 week course taught at one of our affiliated hospitals in Chicago and consists of eight weeks of intensive preparation and review for the USMLE Step 1, followed by eight weeks of introductory concepts in clinical medicine, including rotations through the various hospital departments.
This means that, by the time Saint James students commence their core clinical rotations they have completed their USMLE Step 1 examination and already have some basic clinical experience.
As a result our students are well prepared to get the most from their clinical rotations and their performance in clinical rotations is routinely excellent. 80% receive an A grade in their performance evaluations.
Our students have a reputation at our affiliated hospitals for being committed and motivated. Over 80% are selected for residency programs and over 90% of those students place in specialties like Neurology, Surgery, Radiology, Anesthesia, Psychiatry, Family Practice and Internal Medicine.
