Early Clinical Experience

You will have immediate clinical experience through interacting with real patients in your first week. During the clinical integration course, you will be paired with a physician mentor who will guide you through developing foundational clinical skills and an understanding of healthcare systems. Your family medicine clerkship begins at the start of your second year.

Carle Health System will offer Carle Illinois students in-depth clinical experiences in internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology. Students will have an early opportunity to engage in advanced clinical electives.
