Our fourth year clerkship provides a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the practice of family medicine at our new Morehouse School of Medicine Dominican Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program located in Santa Cruz, California.
The residency is sponsored by the Morehouse School of Medicine, in partnership with CommonSpirit Health, dedicated to diversity, inclusion and health equity. The clerkship is recommended for students who would like to explore family medicine for the underserved in a community setting. It is not a prerequisite for acceptance into the residency program.
The fourth year subinternship elective is designed to prepare medical students for upcoming residency. Each rotation consists of a 4-week block (alternatively, if best for the student, a shorter 2-3 week rotation can be arranged) in which the student will work with experienced, enthused physicians in ambulatory and inpatient settings to provide hands-on experience to support the student’s development en route to residency.
Each student may design their rotation to meet their individual interests and learning goals in the following clinical learning environments provided by the Residency Program:.
Spanish: encouraged but not required
The subinternship program is open to 4th year medical students.
To apply, interested students must provide the program with a completed application, curriculum vitae, transcript and letter of academic good standing from your medical school’s Dean.
Upon acceptance, the Dominican Family Medicine GME office will email all required registration forms that must be returned to the GME coordinator no less than 3 weeks prior to the start of the rotation.
