    How long is fifth semester?

    Advertisements



    How many months is fifth semester? Does fifth semester start a couple of weeks after fourth, or is their more time in between? Do students take step one during this semester or after?

    Thanks

    Aicm

    The Advanced Introduction to Clinical Medicine (Semester 5a) is 12 weeks long and constitutes a portion of 5th semester. There is then a scheduled break for Step 1 studying before you are required to start rotations (with a passing Step 1 score). It typically has started 2 weeks later than classes in Dominica (so you get a longer break). Most students take Step 1 after AICM.

    I believe 5th semester (AICM) starts one week after classes on the island starts, and you have to register the Friday before, so you get about the same time for break because 4th semester students have to stay an extra week for the COMP. AICM does end 2 weeks earlier than the usual semester and most students take some time off after 5th to study for Step 1 depending on when they need to start rotations.

    AICM is 12 weeks in duration. Not sure about the length in Dominica.
