Advanced Clinical Mentorship

Fourth year students can complete an optional advanced clinical mentorship (ACM) in their last year of medical school. The ACM cannot be taken in the third year. The ACM must be no more than 12 sessions in duration and must consist of one-half day per week at a single outpatient site.

One week of credit will be given for 12 weeks of the ACM experience (based on one-half day per week) and this credit will be counted towards the required 80 clinical weeks. Additional sessions may not be taken due to other students who are waiting for a faculty sponsor. 

The ACM has the unique characteristic of running concurrently with other electives. Proper planning and good communication with the course leaders of the concurrent electives, as well as with your ACM faculty sponsor is essential. Note: if a student is also engaged in completing an elective course, course requirements in the elective take precedence over the ACM.

Below is a listing of advanced clinical mentorships that are formally offered. Please be in touch with the contact person listed for availability and scheduling. If you are interested in doing an ACM that is not on this list, it must be proposed as an independent study at least two weeks before it is to begin.

In order to receive credit for the ACM, please send the following information to ams-student-records@brown.edu at least two weeks prior to your start date:

  • Course Name
  • Course Date
  • Start Date
  • End Date
  • Faculty Sponsor Name
  • Faculty Sponsor Email

As with all course registrations, you will not receive credit if the course registration is not done prior to the start date. Retroactive registrations cannot be processed.
