Jefferson Medical College Alpha Omega Alpha Guide to the Clinical Years

Sub-Internships

Two 4-week sub-internships (Sub-Is) are required in the fourth year:

  • The Inpatient Sub-I can be taken in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, or Family Medicine*
  • The Outpatient Sub-I can be taken in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, OB/GYN, Psychiatry (2 types), or Pediatrics

Sub-Is give you the chance to act as the doctor. You are given the responsibilities of an intern, but have fewer patients to follow. You will learn a great deal during these rotations and you will certainly gain a great deal of confidence.

Many students use the Inpatient Sub-I as an opportunity to shine, and by doing so, hope to receive a letter of recommendation. For this reason, many students try to schedule the rotation early in the fourth year.

At the same time, some students enjoy a Sub-I at the end of the fourth year to help with transition into residency.

*Special Note - The Family Medicine Inpatient Sub-I has only 1 spot/block, so sign up early.
