Each clerkship is offered at multiple sites, and the maximum number of students assigned to each site is determined according to clinical resources (patients, faculty, number of resident teams at site). We have made judgment that exceeding these limits would impair student education. No student will be assigned to the same hospital site for both medicine clerkships.
