Family Medicine Sub-Internship

The goal of the Family Medicine Sub-Internship is to provide a broad-based experience for fourth-year students interested in a career in family medicine. The sub-internship will provide you with a wide variety of patients and problems in order to expose you to all aspects of family medicine.

You will spend most mornings at UnityPoint - St. Luke's or Mercy Medical Center, meeting with the in-house resident before rounds. You will round on your assigned patients daily and write notes and orders. Following work rounds, we have formal rounds with one of our faculty. After rounds, you will follow up on labs and studies for patients. You have the opportunity to work up patients in the ER, assist with deliveries, and complete circumcisions, depending on your interests. You will also attend Morning Report with the residents between working rounds and formal rounds and may be asked to present on a topic during your subinternship.

We have daily noon conferences at either Our clinic, Mercy Medical Center, or UnityPoint - St. Luke's. Lunch is provided every day. Presenters vary, and are composed of residents, faculty, and visiting physicians from the community or from the University of Iowa. One afternoon each month is dedicated to didactics, often accompanied by skills labs.






The afternoon schedule will be somewhat more variable than the morning schedule. Students will spend various afternoons at the Family Medicine Center (residency clinic), working at the Maternal Health Clinic, and in the hospital doing admissions and patient follow up. You will travel with a faculty member, resident, and physician assistant to the Macy and Winnebago reservation prenatal clinics on one Thursday afternoon during the rotation. You will have Friday afternoons off duty.

You will be on Family Medicine Night Float for one week during the rotation in order to gain additional experience. During this week, you will work closely with the night float resident who covers adult medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics. Housing may be available with advance notification.

Community Based Primary Care Clerkship

The Medical Education Community Orientation Program

The MECO Program is sponsored by the University of Iowa Department of Family Medicine in cooperation with the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. The project was developed to provide medical students with an early exposure to various health care delivery systems, helping them with important career decisions. It also provides the participating hospitals and practicing physicians an opportunity to become directly involved with medical students in their early training. The project is designed to broaden the base of medical education through a greater utilization of existing facilities and teaching personnel.

The goals and objectives of MECO are to introduce the medical student to the total scope of health care in the hospital component of the health care delivery system. The MECO Program should also orient the student to the community and to the way in which the health care delivery system contributes to its structure and function. Housing may be available with advance notification.

Requirements

These four-week rotations are open to medical students in good standing from L.C.M.E. accredited schools. Students must demonstrate coverage for malpractice/liability from their medical institution. The student must show evidence of completion of a program on universal precautions ensuring the appropriate handling of blood, tissues, and body fluids during the past year. The student must also provide documentation of tuberculin and Hepatitis B testing. The student is responsible for obtaining authorization of credit from their medical institution for the rotation.

Hospitals & Clinic

The Family Medicine Center is the model office used for the Siouxland Medical Education Foundation's program. The Center closely simulates private practice by providing an ambulatory setting for the residents to gain broad experience as primary care physicians to an approved panel of patients. It is conveniently located within five minutes driving time of the two hospitals in Sioux City: Mercy Medical Center and UnityPoint - St. Luke's. Tour the Clinic

The Siouxland Medical Education Foundation is proud of our facility. Our building, completed in late summer 1998, is a model of dedicated education areas as well as efficient clinical space. The two-story building, totaling approximately 32,000 square feet, allows the Foundation to continue its rich tradition in current programs as well as to introduce new initiatives in medical education.

The first level of the building houses all of the patient care areas. Two exam pods, with twelve exam rooms each, balance the floor plan. Also included are faculty staffing rooms, private dictation rooms, laboratory, x-ray, procedure rooms, nursing areas, a patient education room, medical records room, and a spacious lobby. Level Two offers space devoted almost entirely to education. Included is a large conference room with multimedia capabilities, multiple smaller conference rooms, a library, an office cubicle for each resident physician, and faculty physician offices. Administration, patient account services, and an employee lounge area are also located on the second level.
