Missing Course Descriptions:

PHA-595 Master’s Research Project I
This is the first of a two-part course sequence that will integrate the critical thinking, application of research data analysis, and presentation skills taught throughout the program in a formative research capstone project. Students are expected to apply knowledge obtained from PHA 521: Research and Statistics and participation in journal club activities in the development of their project. Students will work with an assigned faculty advisor to develop a clinical research question and gather, analyze, and critique relevant research literature related to the proposed question to develop an extensive literature review paper. Students will use this information in the next part of the course sequence to prepare a master’s capstone project designed to develop a potential research study. Retake Counts for Credit: No. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: Yes. Credit(s): 1

PHA-596 Master’s Research Project II
This is the second of a two-part course sequence that will integrate the critical thinking, application of research data analysis, and presentation skills taught throughout the program in a formative research capstone project. Students are expected to apply knowledge obtained from PHA 521: Research and Statistics and participation in journal club activities in the development of their project. Students will work with an assigned faculty advisor to develop a feasible research project based on the research question and literature review developed in PHA 595.

In addition, a series of elective clerkships are taken which ultimately comprise a minimum of 44 total weeks. Required senior core clerkships total 24 weeks. The remaining 20 weeks required of the fourth year consist of elective study in areas of special interest to each student.The choice of electives is guided by the goal of an educationally balanced undergraduate experience. Of the 20 weeks of required student-chosen electives:

    • a minimum of 12 weeks must be patient care electives

    • a maximum of 8 weeks can be virtual away electives taken at other Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) - or Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited institutions.   Of these 8 weeks, up to 4 weeks can count for credit.

  • The full text under the Electives section of the fourth year curriculum should read as follows:

    Students are required to take 20 weeks of electives. Please note: Only elective weeks taken during the student’s M4 year count toward this requirement. Clinical elective rotations taken in other years cannot contribute toward the fulfillment of the 20 weeks of required electives.

  • The USMLE Step 2 section should be deleted.  This is not a requirement for this cohort.
