Internal Medicine (Third Year): 3 block rotation (12 weeks)

During the student’s 12-week medicine rotation they are expected to be proactive learners and ask questions. This rotation is supposed to acquaint the student with the varied aspects of medical care for adults. This will accomplished through rotating through the inpatient internal medicine service and various subspecialties in medicine. There will be a larger emphasis on enhancing the skills of taking a complete history, performing a physical examination, and presentations, developing a differential diagnosis for common clinical presentations and problems, and finally, developing evidence-based high-value care plans. Most students will see a mix of patients in the office setting as well as in the inpatient setting while other students will only be seeing patients as inpatients. The students will complete three total IM rotations that can be completed in the inpatient and outpatient settings at their core rotation sites. These can be a combination of General Internal Medicine as well as the various subspecialties like Cardiology, Heme/Onc, Infectious Disease, Pulmonology, Critical Care, Hospital Medicine, and Gastroenterology.
