Clinical clerkships are available at Naval Medical Center, San Diego to Navy HPSP, USUHS, and HSCP students. Clerkship requests are scheduled via email to the Graduate Medical Education Clerkship Office on a first-come, first-serve basis, depending on availability. All clerkships are 4 weeks only, with the exception for dental clerkships. 2-4 week rotations are allowed.
HPSP students requesting Non-AT clerkship are allowed, for 4 weeks only, and solely for November - June. Active duty requests will be priority.
