IDPT 8005, Integrated Clinicians Course 5

Transition to Residency 2 and Career

The final Integrated Clinicians Course, Integrated Clinicians Course 5 (ICC 5), is in part, a continuation and expansion of the skills and knowledge of ICC 4. Designed to transition students to residency, as well as prepare them for their chosen career, this ICC will include many specialty-specific sessions. Students will have the opportunity to expand on their teaching and leadership skills, discuss legal issues (including malpractice), financial planning and mentoring, and review on-call issues and journal articles. Additionally, BCLS recertification, as well as ACLS instruction and certification, will be completed during this ICC. As a final didactic session just before graduation, ICC 5 serves as the capstone to a successful medical school career.

Attendance is mandatory and make up assignments will be required for all absences.
