The clerkship in Internal Medicine is an eight-week ward experience designed to expose students to the diagnosis and management of common medical conditions. During this time, students will build a cognitive knowledge base in medicine through a combination of a common curriculum followed at all the hospital sites, along with lectures and seminars.  We anticipate students will leave with a sense for the excitement and variety inherent to internal medicine, and the satisfaction that comes from caring for patients in this discipline.
