This experience offers the opportunity to incorporate the Family Medicine perspective into the care of inpatient and outpatient services. The acting intern will admit and manage patients under the supervision of senior Family Medicine residents and faculty. The acting intern will have the opportunity to assist in the care of women during labor and delivery as well as newborns delivered from the Family Medicine. Besides daily hands-on bedside teaching rounds, with the resident team, there are formal teaching rounds conducted during the week. Our goal is an integrated approach involving all aspects of inpatient Family Medicine care.
