4th Year Sub-Internships

Our program offers a four-week sub internship elective to qualified 4th year medical students. This family medicine 4 week experience is offered in the months of September, October, November, December, January, February. The specific dates will be sent to you upon initial request regarding the sub-internship.

It is our goal to offer students a rotation that closely replicates the experience of a first year resident at Valley Family Medicine. To accomplish this goal students are scheduled in the family medicine clinic as an R-1 where they see patients independently.

In addition to the outpatient responsibilities the student is paired with an R1 on the combined inpatient medicine/pediatric service. The student takes call every fourth night and admits every other patient from the R1′s panel (with a cap of three patients). The student manages these patients in conjunction with the resident team during the morning prior to afternoon clinic. The OB Team may also communicate with the student with the goal of providing insight to the OB training experience. Noontime didactics, R1 workshops and Focus Clinics are incorporated into the student’s schedule as well.
