The objective of this study is to better understand the processes involved when medical students “take ownership” in the third year of medical school. In a pilot study conducted in September 2015 at GRU, this term “taking ownership” was used by the Clerkship Director for Internal Medical to indicate an important objective for third year students. Data will be used to create an intervention to be used in the internal medicine orientation, which is mandatory for all students entering Internal Medicine. Subsequently, the intervention will be evaluated in terms of how well it prepared students to understand and demonstrate ownership.
