Department
Medicine
Courses      Clerkships


Description
Intended for students in their second clinical year who are able to proceed to an advanced experience similar to an internship. Students see patients with a wide variety of internal medical diseases in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, and gain experience in the practical aspects of internal medicine. The variety of patients and the contact with many private practitioners provide a valuable complement to other clerkship experiences. The clerkship experience is enhanced by exposure to a broad variety of patients as well as clinical teaching from community attendings and Stanford faculty. Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from Nancy D'Amico prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to ndamico@stanford.edu. Interested students must send their CV and 2 letters of recommendation – one from the clerkship director, and the other letter from an attending attesting to the student's clinical abilities (i.e. proficient H&P’s and exam skills). These must be sent to Nancy at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to the start of the period that the student would like to enroll in.
