Length Of Course:
The student will have a choice in the specialties of Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, and Pediatrics.
The acting internship allows the student to experience a longitudinal outpatient rotation. The student will work with one faculty member during this time. The student will assume responsibility, with the preceptor’s supervision, for a panel of patients. The goal is to allow the student to care for patients over time with an emphasis on continuity of care. The student will be excused from the other rotations in which they are participating for the ½-day session each week during these six months. The Center for Primary Care office will contact the coordinator of each course that the student has elected during the six month period to notify the coordinator of the student’s participation in the acting internship and to ensure that the student is excused from responsibilities during the ½ day session each week. This rotation also will include a project in health promotion or disease prevention. This project must be approved by the preceptor and by the course co-chair prior to the beginning of the rotation.
