Phase 2 Ochsner

Phase 2 - Third & Fourth Years

Welcome to Phase 2 of the UQ-Ochsner MD Program.

UQ-Ochsner MD students complete the majority of their clinical training at UQ's Ochsner Clinical School, based within the Ochsner Health Service in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. There are opportunities for students to apply for some core rotations at the approved locations as documented on the International Opportunities page.

It is Ochsner Clinical School Policy that Ochsner students must have a passing score on USMLE Step 1 to be deemed in good academic standing during Phase 2. Therefore, a passing score on USMLE Step 1 is required for students to participate in extracurricular activities, such as away rotations, leadership positions, volunteer work, research, and conferences.
