Participating fully in many medical student educational offerings, in July 1986 the Department began to offer a required, third-year clerkship to all medical students. Fellowship training began in 1981 and by the late 80s averaged one international and four national fellows; in 1984, International Visiting Professorships were offered for the fi rst time.
