CDIM has several resources available for the internal medicine subinternship.
Primer to the Internal Medicine Subinternship
Developed by the CDIM Subinternship Task Force, the Primer aims to help students succeed in the internal medicine subinternship and provides helpful information to prepare students for their internship year. The Primer addresses subjects such as:
- Tips for triaging cross-cover
- Negotiating conflict
- Delivering bad news
- Obtaining advanced directives
- Writing transfer notes
- Discharge planning, counseling, and summaries
- Tips for work/life balance
- Documenting procedures
Subinternship Curriculum and Training Problems
The CDIM Subinternship Task Force created curriculum resources for teaching during the internal medicine subinternship/acting internship.
The training problems are based on the learning objectives for the CDIM Subinternship Curriculum and common inpatient scenarios, including cross-coverage situations. The student's version contains the cases and questions while the teacher's version contains answers to the questions based on each case. Only CDIM members can access the teacher's version.
