Advanced Hospital Family Medicine is an opportunity for students to participate in a busy, family medicine oriented, academic inpatient service at Bronson Methodist Hospital. Students will act as a sub-intern on the Family Medicine Service (FMS), comprised of and supervised by residents and attendings from the Department of Family and Community Medicine.
Participants will have the opportunity to work both days and nights on the service. While on days, students can expect to be responsible for the review, evaluation and management of 1-2 admitted patients under direct supervision. They will participate in regular daily rounds, presenting each patient under their care to the attending physician with their plan for the day. Students will be expected to present regularly on medical topics pertinent to the patients under their care. On nights, students will review and evaluate admitted patients and have the opportunity to admit patients from the emergency department.
This course can be taken as a required sub-internship or an elective. Students using the rotation as an elective may choose either two or four week experiences.
