Clinical Education

Clinical rotations at teaching hospitals comprise the final years of the student’s medical education. Our students shadow attending physicians and medical residents, have direct access to patients, and gain valuable hands-on experience. Their professors are physicians, and students work alongside residents to solve complex medical dilemmas.

Each program offered by EuroMed Institute is based on an integrative curriculum that provides our students the option to complete their medical degree in four to seven years. We believe that the exposure to both the EU and U.S.  systems of medicine will make the best physicians.

The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is a three-part series of tests for medical licensure in the United States. The USMLE assesses the applicant’s ability to apply scientific concepts, medical knowledge, and ethical values in an effective, patient-centered manner. The tests are designed for physicians with an MD degree who intend to practice medicine in the United States.

The successful completion of the USMLE is required to practice medicine in the United States. Passing the first two parts of the USMLE is the key component to securing a residency. EuroMed will provide comprehensive administrative and logistical support to our students so they can focus on gaining the knowledge required to successfully complete the USMLE.

The final years of your medical education will be spent in clinical rotations. Depending on the program you choose, students may experience an integrative clinical experience that bridges EU and U.S. clinical rotations. Students will be exposed to both EU and U.S. best practices while completing their clinical education. During this phase, you will work directly with physicians and residents at one of EuroMed’s affiliated training hospitals and gain the hands-on experience needed for a successful transition into a residency program.

Clinical rotations serve as a capstone project for medical students. Students have direct access to patients and will work on resolving some of the complex medical conditions that they will encounter in the future as practicing physicians.

Clinical rotations are also critical to attaining the skills and recommendations needed to secure a residency position. Working side-by-side with physicians and hospital staff, students are given the opportunity to practice their skills and demonstrate what they have learned. Lastly, rotations help students discover which specialty best fits their abilities and interests.

By the end of clinical rotations, EuroMed students will have the confidence and ability to apply their medical knowledge and skills as they transition into a residency program.
