The internal medicine subinternship (also referred to as “acting internship”) is a crucial bridge rotation that builds on skills learned in the medicine clerkship and prepares students for internship. However, rotation structure, assessment tools, and evaluation practices vary widely across institutions. In this workshop, subinternship course directors from across the country review the current national landscape of the internal medicine subinternship. Presenters will also share experiences with subinternship-focused curricula and assessment methods to increase transparency and strengthen the position of the rotation in the UME-GME transition. Members are encouraged to engage in live Q&A and to share their own experiences in an interactive discussion.
