FME2 3010/F - Junior Internship in Family Medicine

Cr Hrs: 7
Session Length: 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 7 credit hours. 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. Medical students at the M4 level may negotiate their learning activities with the course coordinator, as MANY options are available. Here is just one choice (traditional): University Family Practice (UFP), adjacent to the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville, is a 30 year old family medicine practice staffed by residents and faculty. Students provide patient care for a patient population that is diverse and challenging in their health care needs under the direct supervision of family medicine residents and faculty. Various procedures are performed in the office including colposcopy, LEEP, OB ultrasound, minor surgery, “no-scapel” vasectomy, and others. Students may assist on procedures under direct faculty supervision. Students are also integrated into the UFP Inpatient Team, admitting and managing University of Tennessee Medical Center inpatients. Patient care activities with family physicians at the Community Free Clinic round out the learning experience. The student’s clinical interests are definitely integrated into the curriculum of their elective. Rotation sites in the local or adjacent rural area with a board certified family physician in our area will be considered for approval. .
