We offer two opportunities for medical students: an inpatient Sub-Internship and an Outpatient Course.
The Family Medicine Sub-Internship is an elective course designed to allow fourth-year medical students to experience the daily practice of clinical Family Medicine through the care of patients in the inpatient setting under the guidance of Family Medicine residents and attending physicians at the University of Colorado Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
The inpatient portion of the Sub-I includes adult, obstetrics, and newborn care on the Family Medicine Service at the University of Colorado Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus. This experience is intended to allow you to function as an intern on the Family Medicine Service and work with our highly experienced faculty in the care of a diverse group of patients. Night call is required.
The Family Medicine Inpatient Service is staffed by Family Medicine faculty as well as a team of three to five residents. As a student, you will be given patient care responsibilities and at times will work directly with the hospitalists. During the sub-internship, mini lectures are presented by residents and attending physicians.
The Family Medicine Sub-Internship course must be taken for four weeks.
Students must officially register for the course with the University of Colorado Registrar for the School of Medicine. Click here for more details about the application process.
The physician preceptors are residents in the University of Colorado Family Medicine Residency and faculty of the Department of Family Medicine.
The week prior to the beginning of the rotation, contact Felicia Kinsey, Course Coordinator (see above).
Lunch is provided at Grand Rounds on the first Wednesday of the month at noon. Other meals may be purchased at the cafeteria or you can bring food from home.
Please wear a name tag and introduce yourself to residents, attendings, and members of the University of Colorado Hospital medical staff.
Function to the best of your ability as a Family Medicine intern. If you need something or are unclear about something, please ask!
Grading: Grades for this elective will be on an honors/pass/fail basis and are based on the combined evaluations of the faculty and residents working with the student.
The Family Medicine Outpatient rotation is an elective course designed to allow fourth-year medical students to experience the daily practice of clinical Family Medicine through the care of patients in outpatient settings under the guidance of Family Medicine residents and attending physicians at the A.F. Williams Family Medicine Center.
The A.F. Williams site is the continuity clinic for the Family Medicine Residency University track. It is a fully equipped and staffed health center in Denver, providing patient care five days each week. Patients from the practice who need inpatient care are hospitalized at the University of Colorado Hospital on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
You will have the opportunity to care for a diverse group of patients while working with a multidisciplinary faculty including pharmacologists and behavioral scientists, in addition to the experienced family physicians.
