Clinical Externships 

St.Joseph Health Center offers several clinical elective rotations for visiting, as well as CORE medical students. These electives introduce students to the practice of medicine in an academic community hospital. Working directly under the supervision of the faculty, medical students strengthen their skills in various areas, including physical diagnosis and problem-solving. Also, students enjoy the benefit of hands-on experience with a diverse patient population offering extensive pathology. Medical students from an AOA accredited medical school may apply for clinical electives. For more information and to apply online, click on the links listed at the bottom of the page.
