Externship Rotations

 

The Internal Medicine externship appointment is for four weeks.  Due to the individualized attention afforded each extern, we accept only limited number of students at any one time.

 

Requirements

  • Only students in their final year of medical school are eligible.
  • Letters of recommendation from the Dean of the medical school (i.e., good  academic standing and school recognition of externship as approved part of training).
  • Evidence of Malpractice insurance coverage.
  • Curriculum Vitae

Responsibilities

Externs in Internal Medicine are assigned to the teaching service and work closely with the resident staff inpatient care activities in the academic program on a ward team.  Patient work-ups are assigned by the senior resident for each ward team.  The student will attend morning report, noon conferences and two additional teaching sessions with a member of the teaching faculty twice per week.

 

Room and Board

Meals are provided.  In addition breakfast is provided at the morning teaching conferences and noon conferences.

Housing is available free of charge for one month.  Housing is reserved on a first-come basis, at the time of receipt of the extern’s application.

 

Resources

There is an excellent medical library with free copying and computer privileges for residents and students.

 

Evaluation

Performance will be submitted to the Dean of the extern’s medical school following completion of the externship.
