MED 5000 Conferences
These conferences are designed to help students develop skills in clinical problem solving. Conferences will revolve around an individual patient or diagnostic skill (e.g., x-ray or peripheral smear). The moderator will interact with the group, utilizing the Socratic method, to discuss salient points including pathophysiology, differential diagnosis and treatment of the case involved. The selected cases will cover a broad range of important topics in internal medicine.

Grand Rounds is a didactic session presented by a faculty member or visiting professor, which will focus on an important clinical or basic science topic. It is designed to be the "premier" conference of the week.
Morning Report and Medical Student Report with the Chief
You will be informed about the time and location of these activities by your ward team and the chief residents.
You will take call on the same dates as your ward team at the MCGH, VAMC and off-campus inpatient rotations. If you are assigned to a community-based rotation, the clinical experience is the same as the attending physician’s clinical practice. Students are expected to see patients in both the inpatient and outpatient setting with the attending physician. If the attending physician takes call, the student is expected to take call. If the attending physician works weekends, the student is expected to work weekends. On the ambulatory rotation at the MCG and VAMC, the student will rotate in various general medicine and subspecialty clinics. Students do not take call, see inpatients or work weekends.
