Sub-Internship Format and Clinical Sites
Sub-Internships are provided as four-week electives throughout the calendar year. Enrollment in any one of these sub-internships is sufficient for residency application in pediatrics. Students must complete the Pediatrics Clerkship before participating in a sub-internship.
Every year, notification is sent out to eligible students informing them of sub-internship blocks and requesting their preferences via email. Scheduling is then completed through the Registrar’s Office.
