Clerkship Structure

The Internal Medicine Clerkship consists of a 9-week program with three rotations. The first  couple of days provide orientation and consists of didactic sessions as they relate to a number of areas within Internal Medicine. We also include a faculty observed H&P session, advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) training, introduction to clinical ethics and SIMPLE (Simulated Internal Medicine Patient Learning Experience) cases.

Generally speaking, six (6) weeks of the rotation will consist of inpatient/consult Internal Medicine experiences provided at The University of Toledo Medical Center, ProMedica Toledo Hospital, St. Vincent’s Mercy Medical Center, Riverside Methodist in Columbus, Ohio, and/or St. Joseph’s Mercy in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Three (3) weeks of outpatient experiences will be provided in various ambulatory clinics at The University of Toledo Medical Center or an AHEC site, as availability for requests permit. Students will gain exposure to multiple subspecialties including; Pulmonary, Cardiology, Nephrology, Endocrinology, Infectious Diseases, Hematology/ Oncology, General Internal Medicine and Rheumatology.

Students will participate in an Internal Medicine OSCE demonstrating skills they have learned, modeled after the Clinical Skills exam. The National Board of Examiners (NBME) Subject Exam is offered at the end of the Internal Medicine Clerkship.
