Phase II: Clinical Rotations in New Orleans
Year 3 and Year 4 at Ochsner will build on the foundations provided in years 1 and 2 in Brisbane.
Years 3 and 4 make up Phase 2 of the program - the clinical practice phase. Phase 2 consists of 10 core clinical rotations. The core clinical rotations introduce students to, and define the scope of each discipline, as well as provide a foundation on which to progress to postgraduate training. During Phase 2, students develop the skills necessary for their role as residents.
Year 3 Core rotations include Mental Health, Medicine, OB-GYN, Pediatrics and Surgery.
Year 4 Core rotations include General Practice, Medicine in Society, Medical Specialties, Surgical Specialties and Critical Care.
Students work under the guidance of the physician faculty at Ochsner as well as experience team based learning with other healthcare professionals, including Residents, Chief Residents, and Fellows. Rotations cover formal teaching, case based learning sessions, facilitated clinical teaching, and clinical work.
Electives available to Year 4 students provide opportunity for further exploration of areas of specific clinical interest.
Leveraging the unique strengths of both Ochsner and The University of Queensland, students will have a medical educational experience unlike any other.
