Required Clinical Rotations
Rural Clinic Clerkship
A four week required rotation that gives third-year students direct involvement and experience in a functioning rural practice under the direct supervision of a primary care physician, providing exposure to the role of the physician and their interrelationships with community health agencies and offers a wide variety of clerical and office management experiences. Student's clinical experience is primarily in a physicians' office but may include hospital meetings, house calls, emergency room calls, and attending health or social events. Students live in a rural community during the rotation. Housing is provided in most locations as a courtesy to students and is scheduled through the OSU Regional Coordinator.
