Students are assigned to the Department of Medicine for four weeks each during the fourth year. They are offered a variety of locations at which to complete this required block, including the Medical Center of Louisiana-New Orleans, Earl K. Long Hospital in Baton Rouge, and University Medical Center in Lafayette. The students attend clinics and conferences at the assigned location. Emphasis is placed on further developing basic knowledge, skills and attitudes first learned during the third year clerkship. Fourth year students are expected to play a more active role in patient care in order to improve their clinical judgment and procedural skills.
