HYBRID Program

Students in HYBRID progress through a HYBRID lane with their required clerkships in block format but do so at one site: Hennepin County Medical Center. HYBRID also offers longitudinal elective credits in health advocacy, poverty, trauma informed care, and others. 

Clerkships Included in HYBRID:

  • Psychiatry
  • Neurology
  • Internal Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • OB/Gyn
  • Surgery
  • Family Medicine (typically happens at a non-Hennepin Healthcare site)

Potential Benefits

  • Additional layer of on-site coordinator and physician support/guidance from HYBRID team
  • Single orientation/onboarding to site
    • Saves time/stress of learning new locations, systems, etc.
  • Creates learning community amongst students
    • Warm handoffs of rotations (tips from students that just finished)
  • Electives (flex blocks) can be done anywhere
