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:

  • Consultations
  • 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

CDIM encourages wide distribution and reproduction of the primer. An Adobe Acrobat version and a Microsoft Word version are available for tailoring to individual subinternships.
