The Internal Medicine Clerkship is an eight and a half-week required program. Orientation includes didactic sessions, faculty observed History & Physical (H&P) sessions and Aquifer online cases. Students will then rotate through 2-week clinical rotations.

Students will experience six weeks of inpatient/consult rotations at The University of Toledo Medical Center, ProMedica Toledo Hospital, Riverside Methodist in Columbus, Ohio, and/or St. Joseph's Mercy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Students will also be exposed to two weeks of outpatient experiences which take place in ambulatory clinics at The University of Toledo Medical Center, and various clinics around the Toledo area or an Area Health Education Center (AHEC) site.

Students will gain exposure to General Internal Medicine along with multiple subspecialties including Pulmonary, Cardiology, Nephrology, Endocrinology, Infectious Diseases, Hematology/Oncology, Gastroenterology and Rheumatology.

Near the end of the clerkship, students will participate in an Internal Medicine OSCE where student skills are evaluated. The National Board of Examiners (NBME) Internal Medicine Subject Exam is also provided at the end of this Clerkship.
