Elective Title: 45MI705 — MEDICINE
Each trainee will spend his or her time on General Internal Medicine services under the preceptorship of Dr. Joe Legaspi, making rounds on a daily basis. Depending on length of the elective, it will either involve General Internal Medicine or be divided between Internal Medicine and Cardiology. The internist or the cardiologist will make rounds with them, assist in the management and follow up of his/her cases and participate in discussions of case management planning. We will work up one or two new cases a day and follow them through their hospitalization. Each student is encouraged to write pertinent notes and orders under supervision. There is a voluntary night call schedule every third night which allows the students to participate in acute emergency care. The students are only called for valuable clinical problems.
