|Tacoma Family Medicine|
OVERVIEWTacoma Family Medicine offers Sub-internships on a first-come, first-served basis to students in good academic standing whose career goals are consistent with our mission to train physicians for service in underserved areas. We strive to ensure students receive a realistic, hands-on family practice experience. Sub-Is generally are learning experiences of four weeks duration and we anticipate that students matriculating Sub-Is with TFM will interview for a residency training with us.
WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY:
Fourth Year Family Medicine Sub-Internship
We offer a hospital-based Sub-Internship involving two-weeks with a senior resident or Fellow on the obstetrics service and two-weeks working with the senior resident and the interns on the family medicine service. Call for the sub-internship experiences is Q4. Students are provided a pager and a cafeteria stipend for meals when on duty in hospital.
Dates for a clerkship are individually negotiated but generally take place during our interview season—November to February. Clerkships are arranged by contacting Tom Egnew at 253-403-2929 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arranging a rotation involves a phone interview to determine if the residency experience is an appropriate match between our mission to train residents for underserved medical practice and the students’ vocational interests and scheduling needs. Applicants are then reviewed by the faculty and the student is notified of the final decision.
Once a clerkship has been approved, you will receive information for completing the necessary administrative requirements with Multicare’s GME Program Coordinator.
