MED 30000 - Core Clerkship in Medicine (Chattanooga)


Cr Hrs: 12
Session Length: 8 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 12 credit hours. This 8 week Internal Medicine clerkship is required of all medical students. It consists of 6 weeks of inpatient experience and a 2 week ambulatory component. The student is an integral member of the team which may include an attending, residents and other students. Students will be exposed to a variety of medical conditions and care for internal medicine patients in the inpatient and outpatient realms. Goals include improving history and physical exam skills, written and oral case presentations, increasing fund of knowledge, clinical judgment and integration into the team and beginning patient care with improving differential diagnosis and management skills. There is a core conference series, covering important medicine topics. An observed H and P in an OSCE setting is done, and a NBME medicine shelf exam is required at the end of the rotation. The 3rd year clerk is an active participant on the team and in patient care and is encouraged to take as much responsibility for both patient care and their own learning as they are able. The goals and objectives for the Internal Medicine Clerkship are similar across all UT sites (Memphis, Knoxville, Chattanooga, and Nashville). At Memphis, each student is assigned to 2 hospitals which can include Methodist University, Baptist-East, Regional One Health, or the Veterans Administration Hospital, at Knoxville they are at UT Medical Center, at Chattanooga they are at Erlanger Medical Center, and at Nashville they are at St Thomas Midtown.
