Course Overview

The 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 hospital care provided by family physicians, with an opportunity to provide medical 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 also be exposed to a variety of procedures commonly performed by family physicians. Students will be exposed to inter-professional teams and will work effectively with other team members in the care of patients.
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.
