Advanced Clerkships

Advanced clerkships, sometimes called sub-internships (or sub-Is), are a chance for fourth year medical students to dive deeper into specialties of interest within our department while picking up additional training and experience managing and providing complex and compassionate patient care. Advance clerkships can help students make a decision about future residency plans and provide preparation for any field. We are proud to offer 7 courses that build on the required Obstetrics and Gynecology Core Clerkship that students complete in their third year.

Note for Visiting Students: OBGYN 304A, 305A, 306A, 307A and 308A are opening to visiting students. Visiting students must obtain approval through Clerkship Coordinator, Melody King prior to applying for this clerkship. Please e-mail requests to melodyk@stanford.edu. Interested students must send their CV, USMLE score(s), current transcript and a letter of recommendation from the Ob/Gyn Clerkship Director or a faculty mentor attesting to clinical abilities (i.e. proficient H&Ps and exam skills). The letter of recommendation must be emailed to Melody King by the letter writer or their supporting administrative assistant. These must be sent at least 4-6 weeks prior to the start of the period in which the student would like to enroll. Please refer to the course catalogue for additional information.
