    bullet point  Fourth Year Medical Student Acting Internship
     
     
    Description:

    The UPMC Shadyside Family Medicine Residency Program offers an acting internship in family medicine, where medical students can explore the family medicine approach to medicine, and learn more about our residency program. This rotation is largely an inpatient experience at UPMC Shadyside. You will work alongside family medicine residents admitting patients from the emergency department and the Family Health Center. The rotation is unique in that all patients are overseen by family medicine attending physicians. Our residents admit patients from approximately 47 community family physicians. You will treat patients in the emergency room, inpatient wards, and intensive care units. Learning occurs through close interaction with patients' attending family physicians and with senior family medicine residents.

    Formal didactic teaching is led by the teamís attending, a residency faculty physician who meets with the care team daily during sign-in, as well as for walk rounds. This family medicine attending conducts daily teaching sessions, which include didactics, integrated behavioral science rounds, pharmacy rounds, and radiology rounds. Topics range from basic clinical skills to disease diagnosis and management. Care team walk rounds occur daily. You will also participate in the residency's weekly all-afternoon multi-disciplinary conferences. For those students with a particular interest in Family Medicine, additional outpatient experiences can potentially be incorporated, which will be discussed on an individual basis.

    Objectives:

    This rotation will provide you with much opportunity for learning medicine and help you to develop the independent skills you will need as an intern. The internship gives students an in-depth look at our residency program, and it is most appropriate for a medical student who is anticipating applying for residency in family medicine.
