Department of Internal Medicine

Quillen College of Medicine

Senior Medical Student Education Electives

General Information | Selectives | Electives | Sub-Internship/Lectures

Internal Medicine department offers our senior students elective rotations in the following:

Ambulatory Care                 
Infectious Diseases
Pulmonary Medicine

During electives, students will gain clinical experience in Internal Medicine subspecialties and develop comprehensive understanding of the subspecialty as it applies to the practice of primary care medicine.   Each student will be an active member of a health care team which demands a close working relationship with attending physicians, residents, and other students.

See QCOM Course Catalog for elective rotations (2 or 4 weeks) to each subspecialty.  


Students performance will be observed and informally evaluated at all times by the attending physicians of clinical rotations. Standardized evaluation forms will be used at the end of rotations. The attending physicians will be notified electronically through New Innovations to complete the evaluations. After the evaluation is completed the clerkship secretary retrieves it and notates it on the Banner System and forwards it to Student Affairs. Registrars office record evaluation grade.


Due to the short length of each Senior Internal Medicine Selective/electives, 100% attendance will be expected. Excused absence should be approved by the course director. Please also refer to the QCOM Fourth Year Attendance Policy QCOM New Innovations website.


In the event of a needle stick, splattered blood, etc., the student should immediately contact the following people so the necessary paperwork and testing may be started.
