 The Role of Medical Students on the Internal Medicine Wards


The curriculum and expectations for medical students at the UNM School of Medicine may be different from what you experienced during your training.  We want to clarify what is expected of the third year medical students on medicine wards.


First, a note about UNM vocabulary:

·         Phase 1 students are in their first two years of medical school

·         Phase 2 students are in their third year

·         Phase 3 students are in their fourth year


Phase 2 Students






House staff responsibility for students:

·         Welcome students as a member of your team

·         Teach when you have a chance, listen and critique their presentations, review their notes

·         Give feedback to the students that is timely, behavior-based, and specific

·         Sign off on student logbooks/passports when you observe them doing one of the required activities such as ABG interpretation, examining a patient with CHF or liver disease, etc.

     For attendings, it may be useful to review what is included in their log books and schedule some teaching or time for reviewing some of the topic
