MED 40101 - Junior Internship in Medicine




Cr Hrs: 6
Session Length: 4 weeks



This is a face to face clinical rotation. The student will function as a junior intern with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in all of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. Students develop skills of patient evaluation, daily management, and discharge planning on hospitalized patients with a wide variety of pathology. Work as part of a team consisting of a resident and interns with attending supervision. The JI works most closely with the upper level resident providing the mainstay of care for their assigned patients. Opportunity is provided to perform procedures such as thoracentesis, lumbar puncture, paracentesis, etc. as the opportunity arises. Students also find time to gain teaching credits by working with third year students in the Simulation Lab.
