MESSAGE FROM CLERKSHIP DIRECTOR, DR. BONNIE MEATHERALL
Welcome to clerkship! On behalf of myself and our Internal Medicine clerkship team, we hope you find your time with us to be both enjoyable and rewarding. Internal medicine is an incredibly diverse area of medicine and the knowledge you acquire during your rotation will be applicable to any field of medicine you chose to practice.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, suggestions or concerns. Our aim is to make the Internal Medicine rotation a memorable and valuable experience for all of our trainees.
Bonnie Meatherall, M.D., MSc, DTM&H, FRCPC
MESSAGE FROM THE INTERNAL MEDICINE CHIEF RESIDENTS
Hi UofC Clerks!
We can’t wait to meet you on the MTU and Internal Medicine subspecialty wards! Regardless of what career path you ultimately plan to pursue, we hope to make your time on Internal Medicine rotations learning-filled, relevant, and fun.
While MTU can be a busy rotation, it is also a great opportunity to grow your skills and independence by becoming the expert on your assigned patients and by being on-call. Having said that, you will always have a team around to support you – some combination of other clerks, junior residents, a senior resident and a staff. Our rotations are excellent opportunities to cover teaching and bedside physical exam topics of interest to you. Please feel free to let your team know if you have any particular learning objectives or presentations you hope to see during the rotation. We continuously strive to improve the educational experience for our trainees, so we encourage you to share your feedback with us any time during or after your block.
If you have particular interest in Internal Medicine, we host information sessions and we would love to have you join us.
We are passionate about and proud of our program, the people in it, and the patients we care for. We hope you enjoy your experience on Internal Medicine as much as we do! We are here to support you every step along the way, so please feel free to reach out any time to firstname.lastname@example.org or to any of us individually. See you on the wards!
Emma, Rina, Tina and Veronica
