The WWAMI Track program allows a select group of students to be scheduled for a minimum number of weeks (24 weeks for Patient Care Phase, 12 weeks for the Explore & Focus Phase) in one specific city or state throughout the WWAMI region. Medical students must participate in an application process, whereby selected students are matched to Track sites to fulfill their third or fourth year required clerkships.
If a student does not complete the requirements of Track due to expansion or leave of absence, and wishes to continue in Track, they are required to re-apply for the Track program they were initially accepted to during the next application cycle.
