All track scholars will complete their intern clinical work without any modification in their schedule. They will be required to join other scholars in a ongoing curriculum series that focuses on general leadership skills, exposure to the basics of all tracks, and an introduction to the scholars programs.
Starting in the 2nd year, the Health Services scholar will begin coursework onsite at the Harris School. The scholar will be expected to take their core courses and electives during one quarter each year, scheduling them as needed to complete them during years 2-4. During these times, the scholar will not be on any clinical rotations, allowing them ample opportunity to focus on the coursework.
During their 4th year, they will be expected to complete their masters thesis with the guidance of their thesis committee, with representatives from the Harris School and the residency program. Their thesis will count as their required research project. This year will also be utilized to complete the clinical time that they deferred during coursework in the 2nd and 3rd years.
