Clinical Rotations in Chicago
What are clinical rotations and why they’re necessary?
For aspiring doctors, the last two years are comprised of clinical rotations.
During clinical rotations, medical students spend time as part of a medical
team diagnosing and treating patients. No matter how much time you spend
in the classroom there’s no comparison for real-world hands-on experience.
For most students, clinical rotations are the first time students are
able to interact with patients. Understanding and experiencing the human
element through interactions with real patients and their afflictions
is crucial to the development of future medical professionals.
