Student Rotations

A family medicine sub-internship rotation for 4th year students is offered in four-week blocks only.


Providence Oregon Family Medicine offers a four week sub-internship in family medicine for fourth year medical students. The sub-internship is an intensive, rigorous experience in which students will spend two weeks on inpatient service and two weeks at Providence Medical Group-Milwaukie or Providence Medical Group-Southeast. As much as possible, sub-interns will be given opportunities to demonstrate skills at the level of an incoming intern.

On inpatient service, students will be responsible for closely following patients, managing their care under the guidance and supervision of residents and faculty, and presenting their patients at morning report. Students will be expected to work with their team’s coverage of patient calls, ER admissions and inpatient care. In clinic, students will work with a senior resident or faculty preceptor, seeing a wide variety of patients. Under the supervision of their preceptors, students will be expected to write chart notes in the electronic health record and to help provide ancillary care, such as interpreting X-rays and reading EKGs. If scheduled at an off-campus outpatient clinic, students will be responsible for their own transportation by car or bus. For more information, please contact the course coordinator.

Because space is limited, you should inquire early. Please indicate more than one block to increase your chances of getting a rotation with us.
