Interdisciplinary Studies : This one-week course is designed to prepare students for the transition to clerkship. Students are encouraged to apply the principles learned during Fundamentals of Medicine and Dentistry (FMD) and Transition to Clinical Practice (TCP) to practical clinical scenarios. The roles and activities of the clerkship student within the healthcare team are addressed. Students are provided the opportunity to reflect on the opportunities and challenges that come with learning in the clinical setting. The focus of the course will be mainly on allaying students’ anxieties about clerkship through a combination of reflection and discussion, as well as refreshers on content related to acute/deteriorating patients.
