The AI experience is an opportunity for interested students to serve as an intern on a team caring for pediatric patients.  It is expected that the AI will build on skills learned in the 3rd year and show increased independence and decision making in managing patients. Students will carry patients as an intern and directly report to the senior resident or faculty member.  They will carry an average of 3-4 pts, be responsible for notes, labs, and presentations daily and serve as an integral member of the team.  In both locations, independence, medical decision making, differential diagnoses, physical exam skills and oral presentations will be emphasized.  Call will be as part of the team--every 4th night and weekend days with the team.
