Noorda-COM has established affiliation partner agreements with most of the healthcare systems, many hospitals, and physician practice groups in Utah. The affiliation partnerships will allow Noorda-COM’s third-year students to complete core clinical education at facilities along the Wasatch Front. This will make it easier for students to stay in Utah to meet their clinical education (rotation) requirements. View Noorda-COM’s Patient Care Supervision policy here.


Third-year rotations will be 6 weeks in length, instead of the traditional 4 weeks, and will cover the 6 primary areas of specialty (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, OB/Gyn, Pediatrics, Surgery, and Psychiatry).  Weeks one and six are accomplished on-campus with weeks two through five on service.

In week one, Noorda-COM faculty will prepare students for discipline specific content through a blending of:

  • Electronic Medical Records (EMR) documentation
  • Osteopathic Principles and Practice (OPP) to include Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM)
  • Holographic, animated, and live patients
  • Hands-on skills
  • Augmented, virtual reality and manikin-based task trainers
  • Learning objective videos to include Q-Bank material

Students will then complete 4 weeks of clinical service at one of our clinical partners who are all within Utah along the Wasatch Front. On service, core clinical rotation academics are supported from campus through online, asynchronous, learning objective-driven content, to include performance feedback using the same format students experienced in years one and two.  Clinical Adjunct Faculty will evaluate students on service-related competencies and milestones.  During week 6, end-of-service skills assessments, Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs), and shelf exams are accomplished on-campus and led by Noorda-COM faculty.
