Welcome to Medicine Department

 

The Objectives of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Ponce School of Medicine is to provide education and training in the broad field of Internal Medicine. The Department of Medicine is aware that medical education is a continuum that begins in the first day of medical school, and follows in most cases into Post-Graduate Medical Training, and continues for the remainder of the physician's professional life (Continued Medical Education).

Our program is divided into the (1) undergraduate program, (2) the graduate and residency training program, and (3) continuous medical education program. The latter takes advantage of some of the conferences in our Post Graduate Training Program and allows for credit hour of Continued Medical Education (CME). In the undergraduate program, third and fourth level, a position has been assigned for supervision of each year.

 

General Goals
  1. To expose students to a broad array of clinical cases in a hospital setting.

  2. To develop the clinical competencies necessary to perform as outstanding physicians.

  3. To develop history taking and medical interviewing skills.

  4. To work effectively with other health care professionals and under the supervision of a preceptor.

  5. To put into practice and continue to acquire necessary medical knowledge.

  6. To acquire clinical experience.

  7. To develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes set forth by the clerkship.
