Student Electives

Our clinic hosts many visiting students throughout the academic year. We offer a family medicine sub-internship for which applicants must be fourth year medical students affiliated with an accredited medical school.  Please apply through OHSU.

Students must come for no less than 4 weeks and no more than 8 weeks. On a case by case basis course length may be adjusted to meet student needs. There is a $75 fee for every 4 weeks that they are here and it has to be paid within 10 days of accepting an offer or they will be dropped from the rotation. Required documentation for the VSAS application includes: 

  • CV
  • transcript
  • immunization form
  • step 1 scores
  • a copy of your BLS or ACLS card
  • a letter of intent
  • a letter of recommendation.

Your school must provide malpractice coverage as well. Please apply early to ensure rotation availability.

The four-week clerkship is open to fourth year medical students interested in doing a primarily clinical rotation. Students are offered excellent outpatient experience in the clinic and may precept their patients with either the attending physicians or upper level residents. Students may choose to spend one week with the inpatient medicine team as part of their experience.

The sub-internship is offered to fourth year students only. Students manage patients as an intern on the inpatient medicine service for two weeks and participate in outpatient care for two weeks. They are expected to take call with an intern once weekly while on the inpatient service, and students give one noon conference lecture/case presentation on a topic of their choice at some point during the rotation. If obstetrical experience is desired, some involvement in deliveries may be available.

This electives provide an excellent opportunity to check out the program and life in Klamath Falls. Housing accommodations with residents or faculty may be available.
