Statement of Goals:
The goal Family Medicine sub-internship is to expose students to the underserved patients on the Family Medicine Service at Ben Taub General Hospital. Students will assume the role of an intern and will learn the family medicine approach to the care of adult hospitalized patients with emphasis on caring for patients in the context of their family environment, addressing psychosocial, cultural and financial issues and providing longitudinal care for patients with chronic issues. Night float is required.
Learning Activities
Students will be given primary responsibility for the care of a set of patients, be exposed to common and complex inpatient medical problems and learn how to establish management plans independently. They will be expected to write H&Ps, write orders, cali consults, receive and give handoffs. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the care of obstetrical and newborn patients, especially during night float.
Evaluation Methods
The student’s grade will be based on feedback from all of the faculty educators with whom the student has interacted.
