Sub-Internships

This rotation was the best experience that I have had in medical school. I learned more in one month on this rotation than I have in any other 2- to 3-month-long rotation. I worked with great residents, faculty and students. I feel infinitely more prepared for residency than I did prior to this rotation.

Content

During this rotation, medical students experience increased autonomy, acting as interns who are supervised directly by senior residents and the attending physician. Students use experiential and self-directed learning to expand their medical knowledge. They hone their history and physical skills, write orders, and develop diagnostic and therapeutic plans independently. Students also further develop their communication skills with patients, families, physicians, nurses and other members of the healthcare team. The rotation begins with an Academic Half Day, during which students from all sub-internships at Baylor meet to learn skills involved in transitions of care. During the rotation, students get to practice these skills, including hand-offs, calling consults and discharging patients.
