ABSTRACT
The article reports on the challenge posed by the expansion of clerkships as U.S. medical schools respond to a call by the Association of American Medical Colleges for a 30 percent increase in class size by 2015. Clerkship covers clinical training in teaching hospitals during students' third and fourth years. In a poll in the May 2008 issue "Academic Medicine," clerkship directors in internal medicine reported that even a 15 percent increase would require adding an average of 3.7 students to inpatient clerkships.
