Core Medicine Clerkship
Welcome to the Internal Medicine Clerkship! The Internal Medicine Clerkship serves as a focal point of the second-year Foundations in Clinical Care (FCC) educational experience in Vanderbilt's Innovative Medical Curriculum. It is the backbone of medical students' training in medicine and the most intensive in-patient experience offered in the department. During this rotation, students will experience the breadth and diversity of diseases. Students will learn both the science and the art of medicine and how the two complement each other. Students will expand their history and physical diagnosis skills, develop the ability to prioritize patient problems, and generate a prioritized differential diagnosis. Students will have the opportunity to implement patient management strategies and observe their effects.
