Internal Medicine Enrichment and Development: A summer exploration program for pre-clerkship students
Medical students often have difficulty selecting a residency training program. The internal medicine clerkship rotation occurs primarily on the general internal medicine ward, making it difficult for students to experience the breadth of IM subspecialties prior to making career decisions. Herein, we describe a two-week student-led program (IMED: Internal Medicine Enrichment and Development) designed to give interested pre-clerkship students an overview of the internal medicine subspecialties in order to broaden their understanding of the opportunities within the field. We believe that medical students across the country would benefit from such exposure in order to make more informed decisions about residency.
