Medical Students

Thank you for your interest in Swedish Covenant Health!

Each month, medical students rotate through the hospital and its affiliated primary care centers with our residents and physicians. Swedish Covenant Health takes pride in its teaching. We feel that it is important to foster an environment of education within our residency and for our students. While on rotation at Swedish Covenant Hospital, the students are required to attend morning report and focused teaching rounds with our attending physicians. Students also participate in noon didactics and monthly conferences, including morbidity and mortality, tumor board, clinical pathology conference and ambulatory care conference. 

Medical School Affiliations
