Progress and Promotions Committees

The academic progress, including professional development, of EUSOM students is monitored in two separate Progress and Promotions (P & P) committees.

Promotion in the Foundations Phase

The Foundations Phase course directors assign grades to students on a Satisfactory/ Unsatisfactory scale. Any student who receives a grade of Unsatisfactory must undertake remediation according to the policy approved by the Curriculum Committee, to the satisfaction of the module director.

Promotion in the Application, Discovery, and Translation Phases

The student¿s performance in clinical medicine in the clerkships/courses (i.e., Application, Discovery, and Translation of Medical Science phases) is an important assessment of their skills and competency in clinical medicine.

Length of Time to Complete Degree

The standard MD program at EUSOM takes four years to complete; however, students may apply to postpone graduation for a year.
