Medical Students


For the last few years, Penn State Hershey faculty at University Park, as well as physicians from Mount Nittany Physician Group and the community, have teamed together to create eight clerkships for Penn State medical students. Our goal is to help third and fourth year medical students develop basic skills and individualized thought processes in order to make medical decisions which will guide them throughout their careers.

Clerkship site directors at University Park have worked with clerkship directors at the Medical Center in Hershey to develop an equivalent curriculum on both campuses. The learning experience at University Park has been somewhat adapted based on the unique resources of a regional campus.

Simulation Laboratory

In collaboration with Penn State School of Nursing, regional campus medical students have access to a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory at University Park. Learn more.
