M3 Clerkship

Welcome to the Internal Medicine Clerkship.  The clerkship consists of an intensive two-month experience on the medical team at VCU Medical Center and Hunter Holmes McGuire VA Medical Center. This clerkship is augmented by weekly conferences and scheduled departmental lectures and rounds.

We have made every effort to provide an environment in which your own skill-directed learning can be maximized.
