In addition, there is ample time for a variety of elective courses. Students will have the opportunity to take elective courses in Doha, in New York City at the home campus, as well as at other locations in the United States and abroad. Students will take rotations in their selected career, but are also encouraged to broaden their experiences, and use electives to sample disciplines they will not be able to experience again once they move on to graduate training. Having a breadth of experience is the best preparation for delving into the depth of a chosen career.
In this final year of medical education students continue to sharpen their clinical skills as they face real life medical situations in preparation for their upcoming residency training programs. Also, the geographic location of the school as well as the cultural diversity of both the faculty and the students offer additional academic benefits. These enable the students to better understand and grasp the broader aspects of medical practice in this era of globalization and evolving paradigm of health care.
