This four week clerkship is open to fourth year students who have already completed inpatient rotations in medicine and pediatrics. This advanced inpatient experience provides an opportunity for motivated students to challenge themselves with an in-depth experience in inpatient family medicine. The goal of the experience is to help prepare future family physicians to provide high quality inpatient management of common problems, including procedures and medical emergencies.
On this service you will function at the intern level as a member of the Teaching Service team, which consists of two upper year residents and two other interns. Your team will care for approximately 20 inpatients who are offered to the service by the Middlesex Hospital Inpatient Management Service. Your responsibilities will include performing admission histories and physicals, daily work rounds and progress notes, dictating discharge summaries, and responding to hospital emergencies. Your rotation will include some weekend experience and some time on night float.
During your month on service you will participate in multiple daily teaching opportunities, including morning report, hospitalist teaching rounds, and subspecialty conferences. You will also be released from your inpatient duties each Wednesday afternoon to attend half day conferences with the family medicine residents.
