MED 304A: Cardiovascular Medicine Clerkship - Inpatients

Selective 2. Open to visitors. General cardiology rotation remains part of the bread and butter core of internal medicine inpatient rotations. Together with the CCU/heart failure (PGY II) and the cardiology consult service (VA and Stanford), these rotations form the foundation of the cardiology knowledge base for students. Advances in diagnostic imaging, rapid bedside testing and evidence based clinical trials have allowed us to deliver coordinated complex care to our patients with ample opportunities for teaching and learning. The development of the skills and knowledge required for the practice of cardiac vascular medicine is an essential part of the educational process of internal medicine training. Cardiovascular diseases affect millions of Americans and now we have tools and drugs to treat and/or prevent this problem. It is an essential large component of a daily internal medicine practice. Involves four weeks of intensive experience with clinical cardiology inpatients. ECG reading will be included. Students are required to attend daily teaching rounds with the attending cardiologist and house staff, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine conferences, and formal teaching sessions, including electrocardiography.

PSYC 358A: Subinternship in Inpatient Psychiatry

Selective 2. Open to visitors. The inpatient psychiatry subinternship at Stanford is designed to provide a training experience similar to that of PGY1 psychiatry residents on an inpatient rotation. Subinternships go above and beyond the Core Psychiatry Clerkship and involve levels of intensity and commitment expected of beginning interns. While still supervised as medical students by the attendings, the subinterns should be preparing themselves mentally and physically for internship training. The subinternship at Stanford offers a diverse patient population across genders, adult ages, social economic status, and ethinicities. Of note, it offers cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy experiences, medical-psychiatry cases, forensic/hearing exposure, and ECT observation. The overarching goal of the psychiatry sub-internship is that, upon successful completion of the rotation, students will be ready to function at the level of a first-week psychiatry intern and be able to discuss his or her performance according to six ACGME competencies. Objectives that set the subinternship apart from the core psychiatry clerkship are (1) demonstrate progression from "interpreter" to "manager" in the "reporter-interpreter-manager-educator" (RIME) scheme; (2) efficiently manage a caseload of 3 to 6 patients at a time; (3) assist the attending in teaching patients/families, core clerkship medical students, and/or staff; and (4) evaluate his or her efforts towards self-reflective practice and self-directed learning.

PSYC 362B: Subinternship in Inpatient Psychiatry at PAVA

Selective 2. Open to visitors. The inpatient psychiatry subinternship at the Palo Alto VA is designed to provide a training experience similar to that of PGY1 psychiatry residents on an inpatient rotation. The subinternship at the Palo Alto VA offers a diverse patient population across factors such as age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and diagnosis. Additionally, it offers individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy experiences, medical-psychiatry cases, forensic/hearing exposure, and the opportunity to work on multi-disciplinary treatment teams in an acute inpatient setting. Additionally, the VA is a unique system in which to work because of the types and number of wrap-around services and resources that work to serve the veteran¿s needs including housing assistance, substance abuse treatment, intensive outpatient treatment programs, groups, and case management services. The unique national VA system of care therefore additionally allows a subintern the experience of learning about systems-based practices that are unique to this setting. The overarching goal of the psychiatry subinternship is that, upon successful completion of the rotation, students will be ready to function at the level of a first-week psychiatry intern and be able to discuss his or her performance according to six ACGME competencies.
