The Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Clinic Internal Medicine Program offers an intensive inpatient training opportunity for fourth year medical students who want to gain an educational experience in an internal medicine environment with diverse and complex patients.
Senior medical students will function as part of a team including an attending hospitalist, a senior resident, two interns and an M-3.
The M-4 student will care for a diverse patient population and round with inpatient teams, working closely with interns, residents and attendings in a challenging and supportive learning environment.
Sub-I students will evaluate and manage patients on their service with direct oversight from a senior resident and attending physician. Sub-I’s will typically carry between three to six patients on their service depending upon the student’s abilities and the severity of illness of the patients. The Sub-I will present cases at Resident Morning Report and during teaching rounds throughout the week.
The goal of the sub-internship is to provide participants with a structured learning environment focusing on evaluation, management, integrative skills, diagnosing and treating a variety of medical illnesses.
The inpatient service includes bedside teaching rounds, simulation center physical exam and ACLS rounds, morning report, admissions, discharge planning, family meetings, daily didactics, noon conferences and working with world renowned specialists. The resident will develop increasing skill in the formulation of differential diagnosis, diagnostic and therapeutic plan development, interpretation of diagnostic studies, interdisciplinary patient management, discharge planning and grow their medical knowledge base significantly.
The assignment is four weeks and is six days per week.
