Subinternship

 

In response to student interest, the Department of Family Medicine Medical Student Education Section and the Family Medicine Residency Network have developed a sub-internship (FAMED 688) for qualified 4th year medical students at the University of Washington School of Medicine and for students visiting from LCME and AOA accredited M.D. / D.O. schools. Students can expect to participate on an inpatient family medicine team with an advanced degree of independence and responsibility in preparation for their R-1 year. Rotations are Medicine Residency Network programs.
