Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center Overview:

Description:  WE ONLY HAVE UIC STUDENTS FOR IP SERVICE, UNLESS CHOOSING An ELECTIVE (M4).

Students will attend a half-day General Internal Medicine clinic both to see new patients with focused problems and to follow up on patients they (or other M4 students) have seen in the hospital. This clerkship is designed to expose you to primary care Internal Medicine, which is often very different from the practice of inpatient medicine. The goals of the clerkship include:

  • to learn to diagnose and care for acute and chronic medical problems in an ambulatory setting
  • to become familiar with screening guidelines based on a patient’s age and gender
  • to begin to implement primary prevention during most patient encounters
  • to become familiar with the policies and protocols of managed care
  • to be able to perform a Medline search efficiently and apply the information to your practice
  • to experience the rewards and satisfactions for the practice of internal medicine. These objectives are met through direct patient encounters, through participation in case-based lectures, and through a mentorship with primary care internists.

Guidelines for Housestaff Interaction with Medical Students Assigned to Floor Rotations

  1. Lines of Command

MS-3 Each MS-3 will be assigned to a PGY-I. This PGY-I should initially assign 3-4 interesting patients to their MS-3. These patients are still the responsibility of the PGY-I. The MS-3 should write orders and daily progress notes, but these notes and orders must be read, corrected as necessary, and then countersigned by the PGY-I.

  1. Attendance at Morning Report & Department of Medicine Lectures
  1. a) Morning Report
    All MS-3 students assigned to Internal Medicine rotations form the University of Illinois are required to attend morning reports each weekday at 7:00 AM sharp.
    MS-3 students will occasionally be asked to present cases.
  2. b) Lectures
    MS-3 students are invited to and expected to attend as many Department of Medicine lectures as their patient care responsibilities allow. After the lectures are over, please sign in and include your pager numbers.
  3. Taking Call:
    MS-3 students will take call with their assigned PGY-I. The PGY-I should alternate admissions with the MS-3, but must review all histories and physicals, notes, and orders written by the MS-3. For direct admissions this can be done in concert with the senior resident on floor call. MS-3 students should never work up more than two patients per day.
  4. Patient Load:
    MS-3 students should initially be assigned 3-4 patients whom they should follow until discharge, transfer, or death. They should receive additional patients in concert with their assigned PGY-I. The maximum number of patients assigned to a single MS-3 is six.
  5. Discharge Summaries:
    Students do not dictate discharge summaries. A PGY-I is responsible for the discharge summary of a patient for whom he or she is assisted by an MS-3.
  6. Procedures:
    MS-3 students may do invasive procedures that they have previously observed under the direct supervision of the senior resident on the service.
  7. Work Rounds and Teaching Rounds:
    MS-3 students shall participate in both work rounds and teaching round to the full extent of their capacities.

The students have a standardized patient exam at UIC. The exam will take place at the SAIL Center of UIC

Evaluations:

Dr. Grumet will give each student mid rotation feedback. The composite grade for the clerkship will be assigned by Dr. Asra Khan.

Miscellaneous:

Students will get St. Francis photo ID and a pager, both of which must be returned at the end of the rotation. Students are allowed FREE meal tickets when they are on call. Students must complete & return the Rotator Data sheet & Internet Users Access forms to student coordinator, Catherine Clark. Evaluation forms (enclosed in your packets) for Medicine Residents/Teaching Staff should be completed at the end of your rotation and forward to Student Coordinator. These forms are not mandatory but we would like to know how you rate the physicians you were assigned to during your rotation.

During the inpatient experience, students act as an integral part of a dedicated resident-intern team.  Residents and interns enjoy the opportunity to teach others and to facilitate the professional growth of physicians in training.  Residents receive formal instruction in developing skills to help students rise to their fullest potential.  Teaching on the floors occurs at the bedside, on work rounds and during teaching rounds with an assigned teaching attending.

Ambulatory training is conducted in one of the resident clinics located near the hospital.  The medical students and residents in these clinics are supervised by dedicated faculty.

CALL SCHEDULE:

Long Call on the general medical floors is every fourth day.  The long call team signs out to the night float and leaves by 9 p.m.  Students also have the opportunity to admit patients on the team’s short call day which occurs every fifth day from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  No overnight call for students.

RESIDENT/ATTENDING INVOLVEMENT:

On Inpatient service, each student will work with a 2-intern, 1-resident team.  Each 2 teams have a teaching attending they meet with 3 times a week, and each patient has a primary attending.  On ambulatory service, students will work directly with residents and attendings.
