Medical Student Clerkships
Get a taste of Family Medicine Residency!
We welcome all fourth year medical students to join us for a four week, rural family medicine rotation. We take this opportunity to give the student a taste of what life as a resident in Family Medicine would be. The educational opportunities will be a combination of both inpatient and outpatient experiences. During the four weeks, the student will spend a week on each of the following: Outpatient Clinic, Inpatient, Night Float, and OB/peds services. The student will also join the residents for their Thursday afternoon didactics.
Outpatient Clinic: The student will follow 2nd and 3rd year residents while in clinic. They will also take part in procedure clinics which may include Coumadin, OMM, MAT, Lumps and Bumps, exercise stress testing, Colpo/reproductive health, GAC and others.
Inpatient: Students spend a week with our hospital inpatient team which includes a senior resident, 2-3 interns, pharmacy team, and an attending faculty member. They will participate in rounds every morning and be expected to see and present on patients on the service and give a short presentation to the team on a teaching topic.
Night Float: This shift will give the student a taste of resident life. They will work 5:30 p.m. – 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday night with our hospital team at Banner Wyoming Medical Center. They will participate in the morning sign out to the day shift.
OB/peds: Students will spend this week mostly at the hospital with our OB team. They will spend one morning at the clinic with the OB Senior during their OB Intake clinic. One afternoon will be spent at Public Health with a faculty member and resident as they provide reproductive health services. During this week the student will conduct newborn exams, help cover the OB deck, manage laboring patients, manage any pediatric patients, and do a Fetal Heart Monitoring Presentation on Friday to the team.
Once your application is accepted, a link will be sent for the student to begin their credentialing onboarding with Banner Wyoming Medical Center. This is crucial for the rotation, as a good amount of time is spent within the hospital.
We have a formal affiliation agreement with The University of Washington to provide family medicine sub-I’s. If you are an interested UWASH student, please contact your school for more information.
