The Sub-Internship is a rotation during which a fourth-year medical student takes on an expanded role in patient care, attending to progressive frontline duties and responsibilities regarding patient admission, diagnosis, treatment and discharge under close supervision. This experience is an exciting step forward for students and an excellent opportunity to practice and display maturing clinical skills.
Upon completion of the Sub-internships in Internal Medicine, Family Practice, Surgery, OB/GYN and Pediatrics, medical students are able to complete the following tasks. These training objectives align with the IU School of Medicine MD Curriculum Competencies and Institutional Learning Objectives. This alignment enables faculty and students to understand how current student learning prepares them for the next stage in training and for their ongoing practice and maintenance of certification.
