Saint Joseph Hospital

Clerkship Information and Application

The 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 students. Preference is given to students strongly considering 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-June, and again August-January and can accommodate two fourth year students at a time. Applications are accepted beginning March 15.

The Family Medicine sub-internship is designed to broaden students experience 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 Bruner Family Medicine Clinic and the in-patient 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.
