For Geisinger Commonwealth students
The third-year MD program curriculum at Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine is an innovative hybrid of inpatient block experiences and a six-month outpatient longitudinal integrated clerkship (LIC).
Geisinger Commonwealth is among the first medical schools in the U.S. to adopt the LIC model as the standard clinical experience for the entire medical school class in the third year.
