Medical Student Electives
Ambulatory Medicine Elective (4th Year)
The Section of General Internal Medicine is the site for the fourth-year medical student elective in Ambulatory Medicine. During this rotation, students work with a variety of Internal Medicine faculty preceptors in caring for patients in an underserved urban community. With emphases on patient-centered care and preventive medicine, they gain experience in the diagnosis of the undifferentiated patient, and in the assessment and management of acute and chronic problems in primary care. Students also participate in didactic conferences and lectures that are part of the Temple University Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program.
