Description
The Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center offers a dynamic academic clinical clerkship in advanced medicine. Students serve as the primary provider for their patients: documenting H&P’s, progress notes and discharge summaries, arranging and completing procedures, participating in daily follow-up care, and communicating with patients. Supervision is provided by the senior level resident and the teaching Hospitalist. There are weekly teaching didactics specifically for sub-interns and daily conferences. It is highly recommended that students register for this clerkship near the beginning or middle of their final year of clinicals. If you want to be sure to have a slot for a particular period, you should register to it as soon as possible as the slots are limited and fill quickly. Please note: Visiting students must email Susan Krause at susan.krause@kp.org to apply for the clerkship. Interested students must send the following requirements to Susan: A letter from the Dean of your medical school verifying: - Academic Standing - Approval of Clerkship - Proof of malpractice insurance (responsibility of medical school) - Medical School Transcript - Personal Statement - USMLE Step 1 - CV Written proof of TB screening and vaccinations for Rubella, Rubeola and Hepatitis B.
