Rotations

 

Learn more about our rotations: 

Fourth year medical student rotations done with North Colorado Family Medicine Residency Training Program at North Colorado Medical Center are highly participatory and are NOT an observership.  Students are expected to take primary responsibility for the patients they are assigned while being actively supported and supervised by attendings and family medicine residents. Daily didactics occur on each respective rotation. Students deliver one talk during the four week rotation to the other students, residents and faculty on the same service. Additionally, students attend all residency teaching conferences every Wednesday.  All family medicine residents and residency faculty who work with a student have the opportunity to evaluate that student.  For inpatient rotations, in house overnight call is taken once weekly (four times) during the four week rotation.  There is also opportunity to spend limited time observing in the outpatient family medicine residency clinic.

Outpatient Family Medicine: Students act as the primary provider seeing several patients (average 6) throughout the day in the family medicine residency clinic. Students also participate in other clinics (sports medicine clinic, OMT clinic, community health center), skilled nursing facility weekly rounds, and may observe a variety of procedures (obstetric ultrasound, colposcopy, vasectomy, skin procedures, etc).  There are no overnight on call responsibilities.

Inpatient Adult Medicine Subinternship: Students act as the primary provider for several patients each day.  They make daily rounds on patients, and participate in the admission process of new patients, both from the emergency department as well as direct admissions, by performing admission histories and physicals.  Students assist the family medicine residents with the service throughout the day.

Inpatient Pediatrics Subinternship: Students act as the primary provider for several patients each day.  They make daily rounds on patients, and participate in the admission process of new patients, both from the emergency department as well as direct admissions, by performing admission histories and physicals.  Students may have limited participation in the neonatal intensive care unit. Students assist the family medicine residents with the service throughout the day.

Inpatient Obstetrics/Newborn Subinternship: Students act as the primary provider for several patients each day by rounding on patients and participating in the care of patients in labor triage, labor and delivery, post-partum, and normal newborn nursery. Students frequently receive hands–on experience with cervical checks, intra-uterine pressure catheter insertion, fetal scalp electrode placement, normal vaginal deliveries, perineal laceration repari.  Student's also participate in the residency's OB Ultrasound Clinic.
