INSTRUCTIONAL FEATURES: The student will be assigned to an inpatient general medicine service and will act in the role of a subintern. In general, students will admit 4 to 6 patients per week with the senior resident and follow them throughout their hospital stay. Students will write admitting notes, daily progress notes and orders, which will be reviewed and co-signed by supervising residents. Students should attend the following teaching activities: teaching rounds, morning report, intern's report, noon conference, Grand Rounds.
ASSESSMENT: Students are evaluated by their teaching attending and their supervising resident(s), who observe their performance at bedside and in rounds. Attendings and residents use the College of Medicine Clerkship Evaluation Form which evaluates students in terms of medical knowledge, clinical skills, professional behavior and humanistic qualities. Attendings and residents are encouraged to discuss their evaluation with the student at the end of the rotation.
