Description of Rotation

The student will evaluate newly admitted patients and perform the initial history and physical examination.

Students will continue to follow patients and document progress notes on a daily basis. Oral presentations and daily progress notes will be reviewed with the resident and attending during morning rounds. Required reading, literature searches, and medical reviews are expected.

This elective may be split into day and/or night shifts.
