Internal Medicine Clerkships
Welcome to Internal Medicine! This clerkship will form a foundation for much of your professional life regardless of your eventual specialty. The next 8 weeks will be challenging, exciting, and instructive. As we internists and subspecialists care for our patients, we depend on broad understanding of basic and clinical science, critical thinking and problem-solving, and exceptional professionalism and interpersonal skill in working with the health care team.
Our primary goal is to help you become competent and eventually excel at the assessment and management of common and important problems in internal medicine. During your clerkship, we encourage you to learn systematically about internal medicine and in depth about each patient. Take responsibility for your patients - you will learn internal medicine best through active patient care.
You will find that in return for your hard work and best efforts, we expect your educational experience to be top-notch, and we demand that our faculty, residents, and staff are supportive and helpful to you. If they aren't, the Clerkship Director and Department Chair want to know!! Again, welcome to Internal Medicine - we look forward to working with you.
