WRITE provides an 18 or 24-week integrated clerkship in the third year in one of 21 rural cities located throughout the WWAMI region.

Fourth Year:

  • Required clerkships:
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Surgery Selectives
  • Other clinical electives, for example:
    • Introduction to Detoxification and Rehabilitation Programs for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse: An introduction to alcohol and drug detoxification/rehabilitation with supervised clinical experiences in a variety of addiction treatment programs.
    • Child Psychiatry: An introduction to child and adolescent psychiatry. At the end of the clerkship, the student will be able to assess psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents and be familiar with a bio-psychosocial approach to treatment.

Capstone

Capstone is a required, four-day course taught primarily in a small group and workshop format. It is designed as a “Continuing Medical Education” course, in which fourth-year students (graduating in April of the current year) choose sessions to attend relating to the medical issues, evaluation, management and procedures involved in their planned specialties.

In the suture workshop with Dr. Hall, students practice sutures on pig feet.
