Family Medicine Sub-Internship
BCC 7176

Course Overview

Student rotationThe Family Medicine Sub-Internship is a four-week competency-based clerkship in family medicine, through which the students are expected to actively participate in care of hospitalized patients. Students will be exposed to the full spectrum of care provided by family physicians with an opportunity to provide inpatient care to patients of all ages and a broad range of conditions. Students are expected to assume an expanded level of clinical responsibility for evaluation and management, consistent with an acting intern. Students will participate as a member of inter-professional teams and will work effectively in that capacity to facilitate the optimal care of patients in the hospital setting. Students will be exposed to, and have the opportunity to participate in, a variety of procedures commonly performed by family physicians. Students will be assigned to the inpatient family medicine service of a residency program or hospital-based rural site. Where appropriate, students may also participate in ambulatory encounters that provide additional exposure to the full scope of family medicine and augment their learning. Students are expected to participate in morning report, noon conferences and other available educational offerings.
