Saint Joseph Hospital Family Medicine Residency

Sub-Internships

The Saint Joseph Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program offers many opportunities for medical students to spend time with us at Saint Joseph Hospital. We offer a family medicine sub-internship to fourth year medical students. Preference is given to students strongly considering a family medicine residency after medical school. Rotations are usually four weeks in length, though two week rotations are also possible. We can also arrange shorter visits to help you get to know us as a program.

We host students from May through June, and again from August through January, and can accommodate two fourth-year students at a time. Applications are accepted beginning February 1.

Our sub-internship is designed to broaden student experiences within the full-scope of the practice of family medicine as it relates to ongoing comprehensive care of the patient. Students work closely with both the family medicine faculty and residents throughout the clerkship.

Clinical responsibilities are divided between office practice in the Sr. Joanna Bruner Family Medicine Clinic and the inpatient family medicine service at Saint Joseph Hospital. Throughout the clerkship, emphasis is placed on the development of interviewing skills, physical assessments, patient management, and interdisciplinary coordination of patient care. Students are expected to participate in rounds, conferences, and case presentations.
