FMMD 418 - FAMILY MEDICINE SECONDARY ACTING INTERNSHIP

[152 Hours]
Students may elect to spend a four-week block on the Family Medicine inpatient services of either Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner, University Medical Center in Lafayette, Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, or LSU Bogalusa Medical Center in Bogalusa. The goal of this rotation is for senior students to function as first-year house officers, developing clinical judgment skills by being placed in situations where they are directly responsible for patient care. This is done under the close supervision and direction of senior Family Medicine house officers and faculty. Within the confines of this supervision, the student is encouraged to take on as much responsibility as possible, including taking primary on-call duties. The acting intern is required to attend department conferences with the patient-care team.
