MEDIP 300 - Internal Medicine - Inpatient

Lauren Beal, M.D., Inpatient Clerkship Director

6.00 credit hours

Students are assigned to the medical wards where they participate as part of the health care team. They record the history and physical examination on a limited number of patients. Many of the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are performed by the student on patients under close supervision. Attending rounds are conducted regularly by faculty members for students and house staff. These rounds are oriented toward the problems and care of ward patients. At other rounds, lectures and conferences, emphasis is on a physiologic approach to medicine. At all times, emphasis is on thoroughness in the study of a patient’s disease, plus compassion and respect for the patient as a sick human being.
