Family Medicine - Senior Selective: Hospital (32 hours)
Instructors will include all of the full-time COM Family Medicine faculty from the residency programs in Bristol, Johnson City, and Kingsport. Also, the senior residents on the hospital service in each of these programs will provide supervision and teaching.
The inpatient subinternship on Family Medicine provides an opportunity to diagnose and manage patients on the Family Medicine inpatient service. These patients are unrestricted by age, sex, disease, or organ system. Subinterns will function in the role of an intern and will manage patients under the direct supervision of the senior resident on service. Subinterns' volume of admission and volume of patients managed on the service will be limited appropriately.
