Course Description In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, on March 17, 2020, clinical students were removed from all clinical activities. In alignment with Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) guidance and the School's learning objectives, the Medical Education Committee (MEC) voted as follows: Third year students must complete at least 50% of a clerkship or clinical elective engaged in direct patient care. This course represents the remaining two-weeks of direct patient care required for full clerkship credit for those students who had partially completed these requirements during Block 5 of 2020.
