Duration: 4 week rotation
Course Offered: Throughout the year
Rotation Overview: Internal Medicine
Although opportunities exist for the student to participate in the evaluation and care of outpatients in the clinic, most students choose the traditional “acting internship.” In this setting, the student admits, evaluates and provides treatment for patients typically encountered through the Emergency Room. The students are supervised closely by a second-year Family Medicine resident and an attending physician who is a member of the Internal Medicine faculty. Attending rounds are held daily. There is an Internal Medicine noon conference weekly and a journal review session every other week. The student will gain experience in the evaluation and treatment of patients in a large community hospital. Although close supervision is provided, the student will be expected to serve as the patient’s primary physician during his/her hospital stay.
