Overview of Clerkship Cycle
Beginning in May, AACPM collects information from clerkship programs via the
online site www.dpmclerkships.org. This information is compiled into a
Handbook, which is published in late July.
Applications open in July and applicants can begin selecting programs listed
in the Handbook.
In September, completed applicant files are distributed electronically to the programs. Via
DPMclerkships.org, programs can offer students a position during one of the
months they selected.
By the end of October, all initial applications should have been reviewed and
offers made via rounds.
By mid-January of the following year, arrangements are finalized between
clerkships and students.
