This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 14 credit hours.



The rotation is divided into two four-week blocks, one with the inpatient service and the other primarily ambulatory. Both options provide excellent educational opportunities for students to learn comprehensive and compassionate care of the whole family. Students are directly involved in patient care with their attending physicians (and/or residents) in both the hospital and outpatient settings. In addition, they attend resident conferences and have informal teaching interactions with the faculty members – including community physicians. Throughout the rotation they are offered the opportunity to participate in ultrasound and procedures clinic. Students on the inpatient service participate on night call activities to enhance their learning opportunities. Continuing medical education and life-long learning are emphasized by required daily reading with reports. Rubrics for clinical skills are completed during the clerkship as well as additional educational assignments.
