Central Wisconsin Integrated Clerkship (CWIC)
Join Our Team
The Central Wisconsin Integrated Clerkship (CWIC) is the clerkship experience for MCW-CW students. Students will experience Surgery, Anesthesiology, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Medicine, and Neurology core clinical experiences in a longitudinal integrated fashion. Prior to CWIC, students complete their Clinical Apprenticeship course, which consists of experiences in a clinic setting for one-half day a week throughout their M1 year.
Time Commitment and Availability
You (and your interested partners) will supervise a student(s) throughout the clinical experiences. CWIC runs from the end of M1 throughout their final M3 year, year-round, except for April and May (students are not in clinic during their exam weeks or MCW holidays/breaks). Teaching will occur at the site of your choice (e.g. hospital, clinic, OR, ER, etc.).
On average, students will spend ½ - 1 day each week with you. Additionally, students will spend approximately one day in five on call or in the ER/urgent care as best fits their learning needs and local resources.
