Rotation at a Glance
Medicine subspecialties are taught one-on-one by physicians who practice in the field and are a blend of outpatient and inpatient teaching experiences (depending upon the physician’s patient mix during rotation dates). Medical students meet their preceptors at their preceptors’ offices (which may be on campus at Overlook Medical Center, or near it, but not necessarily on campus) and may or may not be traveling to Overlook Medical Center to round on patients, or for procedures.
Four weeks or two weeks, depending upon preceptor availability:
Successful completion of all third-year core clerkships
The gastroenterology elective provides exposure to a broad variety of gastrointestinal diseases and approaches to common in-patient and ambulatory problems.

Students are welcome to attend daily house-staff conferences and noon report.
