Ambulatory Medicine (Fourth Year Rotation): 2 Block Rotation (8 weeks)

During the 8-week rotation students are expected to meet and exceed the following requirements and challenge themselves. This rotation is different from the 3rd year Family Medicine rotation in that each student is expected to assume an expanded level of clinical responsibility for evaluation and management consistent with an acting intern. Students should also assume a larger responsibility in performing common in-office procedures performed by family physicians.

During this rotation, there will be an emphasis on prevention of illness and caring for the patient in the context of family and community. When applicable, students are encouraged to participate in the care of hospitalized patients, those in skilled nursing or rehab facilities, and home visits. Students are also expected to take on a larger patient volume in the ambulatory and hospital settings. Students are expected to participate in morning reports, noon conferences, and other available educational offerings.
