During the eight week clerkship, students spend three weeks at Mount Sinai Health System and three weeks at Elmhurst Hospital Center. An additional two weeks is spent at Mount Sinai, Elmhurst, or one of Mount Sinai's affiliated institutions gaining exposure to a subspecialty of the student's choice (please note that the Clerkship Program makes every possible effort to match students to the subspecialty of their choice, but this cannot be guaranteed.) The following will be your site schedule depending on which POD you are assigned to.
