The medical curriculum is designed to provide a core of scientific knowledge and technical skills that ultimately enables a student to care for primary patients. In addition to specific knowledge, the school offers an environment in which students have the opportunity to acquire the habits of study, the sound attitud, and the sense of responsibility for patients that characterize the true physician. To achive these purposes, the clerkship of medical student is very important. We investigated current problems in clinical clerkship of Chonnam University Medical School, and the problems were as follow: (1) relatively short period of clinical training especially in main subjects, (2) lack of presonnels in charge of clinical training, (3) lack of objective test, (4) lack of clinical training in primary care hospital, (5) lack of opportunity of self learning. The methods to improve clinical training were to promote interests in clinical education of staffs, to prolong the duration of clinical clerkship, to select and educate the personnel in charge of clinical education, to do the objective tests, to do the elective tests, to do the elective course, to use of integrated course and problem oriented education, and to let the student care the patients under supervision.
