Highlights of Level 3 - Advanced Integration

  • Additional time for Career Exploration - Early board exams allow more time to explore different clinical rotations before making the decision to focus on a specialty.
  • Teaching & Research - provide students with basic skills in teaching and evaluation in a "coached" environment, to revisit foundation sciences by teaching or scholarly activity and to reinforce longitudinal integration in the VIC by revisiting foundation sciences with clinical perspectives.
