The 63-week Clinical program consists of rotations in medicine, general surgery, orthopedic surgery, family medicine, anesthesia, psychiatry, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology and emergency medicine. There is also elective time, one half of which must be spent in clinical activity.

The compulsory components of the Clinical program are carried out in teaching practices and in all the teaching hospitals in the regions of each campus: Waterloo, Niagara and Hamilton.  As well, many clinical placements occur in the communities associated with the Rural Ontario Medical Program.

Because of the proposed changes to the pre-clinical portion of the renewed curriculum, students will be better positioned to call upon and consolidate knowledge and skills during their clinical rotations.  During the national residency interview period, students will be able to focus on interviews and clinical responsibilities consecutively rather than concurrently.
