Sub-Internships provide the student with experience and preparation for inpatient medical care, similar to that of a first year house officer and can be done in Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, or Obstetrics and Gynecology. When students are performing their Sub-Internship, regardless of department, they should act in all capacities as an intern, albeit with a smaller number of patients and greater supervision.
The goals of the sub-internship are for students to
Students can fulfill the requirement to complete their sub-internship at any of the major Tulane affiliated hospitals or at another Academic Health Center with prior approval from the Office of Student Affairs. Students cannot complete this requirement at a community hospital except in Family Medicine.
Because of the responsibilities involved in patient care, students are expected to provide appropriate care for patients, even on designated school holidays (e.g. July 4th, Martin Luther King Day, Mardi Gras, etc.). Sub-Internships should not be taken during months in which the student is interviewing extensively for residency positions. Students who are present fewer than twenty (20) days will be required to make up the time missed during these excused absences. The student will not receive a grade for the sub-internship until this time is made up. The amount and timing of the makeup will be at the discretion of the attending staff and the clerkship office. All anticipated absences must be cleared with the attending physician prior to the rotation.
