DescriptionThe Acting Internship on the GIM Service at Inova Fairfax Hospital provides an excellent opportunity for the student to assume a high level of responsibility for patient care. Each Acting Intern will develop a strong working relationship with a junior or senior resident, as well as a designated teaching attending. This Acting Internship provides an opportunity to work with many different sub-specialties within the field of Internal Medicine. While at Inova Fairfax Hospital the student will attend conferences and rounds with the team. There are daily noon conferences covering a wide range of topics in infectious diseases, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, nephrology, cardiology, endocrinology, and rheumatology. There are additional interactive conferences in EKG and physical diagnosis rounds. There is a separate daily morning report for students where acting interns learn to present and discuss cases. The hands-on patient care experience is virtually the same as that of a regular intern, carrying a patient load averaging 4-6 patients. The Acting Intern is an integral part of the medicine team at Inova Fairfax Hospital, thus you can expect to be on call every fourth day which includes some weekend days, but does not include overnight call. The Acting Internship is especially focused for those who wish to pursue a career in Internal Medicine, a subspecialty of Medicine, or those who are getting ready for a transitional or preliminary year in Medicine. Absences for interviewing, etc. will be permitted only under unusual circumstances and must be approved prior to the start of the rotation.
