Completion of all core clerkships. Open to senior medical students.

Objectives

To provide students with experience in a wide range of health care services for patients in both primary and consultative internal medicine. During each rotation, students will participate in the active internal medicine in-service.

Description

Medical students are assigned to the Internal Medicine Clinical Teaching Unit where they follow inpatient internal medicine patients and become involved with the hospital consultation service. The rotation is particularly appropriate for students interested in a career in general internal medicine.

Students perform medical histories and physical examinations under the supervision of the attending physician and formulate diagnostic and therapeutic plans. They are expected to participate in all hospital-related rounds and activities, and follow selected readings.

Evaluation

Evaluations will be distributed by the MSE department to the preceptor at the end of the rotation.
