Adult Medicine Sub-Internship
When you join the Adult Medicine team as a sub-intern, you're an active participant in daily clinical care. You collaborate with family medicine, internal medicine and hospital medicine attendings, as well as with family medicine residents. Your typical day starts with sign-in to receive patient assignments from 7 to 7:30 am. Depending on patient responsibilities, the team may attend a morning report teaching session on a specific weekday from 7:30 to 8 am. Patient care is followed by a break for lunch and resumes until sign-out between 5:30 to 6 pm. On Wednesday afternoons, you will attend teaching sessions with residents.
What You Can Expect
- You will manage at least two and no more than four patients.
- You will have opportunities to admit patients, conduct daily rounds/management of patients and discharge patients.
- Documentation standards are the same as that of a first-year resident.
- Orders are entered collaboratively with a resident or attending.
While the experience is primarily focused on the inpatient setting, you may also have outpatient experiences. For two to three half-days during the rotation, you may work with second and third-year residents and/or family medicine attendings at the Concord Hospital Family Health Centers in Concord and Hillsboro. If you are intending to apply to our residency through the National Resident Matching Program, spending time in our outpatient sites allows you to see a broader picture of the experience our residency offers.
The majority of knowledge and experience on this rotation comes from direct inpatient care. The skill of documenting admission history and physicals and discharge summaries efficiently and accurately is also emphasized, with mentorship from senior residents and faculty.
The faculty will provide you with formative feedback at the mid-point of the rotation and summative feedback at the end. The content is an aggregate of input from the resident and faculty teachers with whom you worked. You're also invited to share your feedback about your experiences with us.
Interested students are asked to complete an application, which requires specific documentation. We suggest advanced planning, as our available slots fill quickly every year.
