Internship Duties: Interns rotate at 2 week intervals between 5 services and are responsible for the daily activities and patient care in anesthesia, surgery, medicine, emergency, and ambulatory/reproductive departments. The internship begins with a high level of direct supervision; however, independent case management, ambulatory call, and triage of emergencies is quickly encouraged in order to develop confidence, surgical acumen, reproductive skill, effective communication, and mastery of the medical method.
