    Important Facts of Clinical Training


    Clinical Training Through Caribbean Medical Schools
    Some medical school starts Clinical Training at the end of 4th year. While you are in the phase of your Clinical Training; it is time for you to keep few things remembered during the time of your Clinical Rotations. It is said that Clinical Rotations carry an incredible pressure, but if you carry a clear objective; the pressure will not seem too high to you.

    Remember two primary goals of Clinical Training
    Clinical Training is to learn to actually take care of patients and to develop your professional identity as a physician
    Take preparation for the Clinical Rotations
    It is recommended to look ahead to each rotation from an educational perspective. But it is essential to find that each discipline of medicine has its own way of doing things and its own ‘Personality’. Never underestimate your abilities. Clinical Training is intended to help you with applying your Basic Science Knowledge, but also remember that learning medicine is such a process that extends far beyond the single clerkship rotation.
    Now, there comes the point of Clinical Science. Clinical Science combines with principles of medicine, Biology, Chemistry as well experimental Science. It involves with laboratory work such as testing, evaluating, detecting as well analyzing cells or bodily fluid. It is a field that evaluates and investigate medical treatment, methods and principles as well it is a designed study based on hands-on experience and under-control conditions.
    In Washington University of Barbados, students experience clerkship during the last two (2) years when they are focused on Clinical Medical Sciences for 74-80 week. Generally, medical schools in the Caribbean islands arrange Clinical Core Rotations and Clinical Elective Rotations at an affiliated hospital.
