Each student will rotate through three, 16-week courses: Care of Specific Populations (CSP); Hospital, Interventional and Surgical Care (HISC); and Community Based Longitudinal Care (CBLC). Each student will be assigned to start in one of the three courses and complete the other courses in subsequent trimesters. Throughout the year, Central Program students will take part in a longitudinal course known as Social and Health System 4 that meets once a month in Chapel Hill. Clinical placements for courses include Greensboro Region, Raleigh/Wake Region, and Cross Regional (a combination of location assignments that include Chapel Hill, RTP, and Triad); student preference for site placement will be considered.
