MEDICINE SUBBLOCK INSTRUCTIONS
Students scheduled for an All Year Site slot (Abington, Allegheny General, Crozer, Kaiser, York) will be scheduled into Medicine slots prior to running the lottery. Some sites may not have any, or very limited, Medicine availability.
Medicine is a 10-week clerkship divided into two 5-week sub-blocks. The 10 weeks of this rotation must be served consecutively.
This block of time was established during the first round of the lottery and has already been assigned on your schedule. Details of the curriculum is available on the clerkship website. Students will not be able to deterine the order of their two 5-week Medicine sub-blocks.

the 3rd year scheduling information.
- You will be scheduled for Medicine in one of the following three ways:
1) All Year Students: Students pre-assigned to an All Year site will complete their Medicine clerkship at Abington Memorial Hospital in Abington, PA, Allegheny General Hospital
in Pittsburgh, PA, Crozer-Chester Medical Center in Upland, PA, Kaiser Permanenter, in Sacramento, CA, or York Hospital in York, PA, as assigned. All 10 weeks of the Medicine clerkship will be prescheduled and you do not need to enter your Medicine site. OR
2) All 10-weeks at one of the following (includes 5-week inpatient and 5-week combo block):
- Abington Memorial Hospital
- Allegheny Health Network
- Crozer-Chester Medical Center
- Easton Hospital
- Pinnacle Health System
- St. Francis Medical Center
- York Hospital
- Mercy Catholic Medical Center and Philadelphia Area combination block (to be assigned by the Department of Medicine)
- Hahnemann University Hospital and a preset combination block (randomly assigned to Nazareth Hospital OR Philadelphia Area)
Students will not be able to deterine the order of their two 5-week Medicine sub-blocks.
The computer already recognizes which block you are assigned and will only let you select from the dates that are available to you. The exception to this is if you have an open time period on your schedule (i.e., if you are out of phase and are not scheduled for a period of time).
