Elective Clerkships - Internal Medicine at MedStar Franklin Square

The Department of Medicine offers inpatient medicine and medicine subspecialty clerkships to senior medical students who have completed core medicine clerkships. Clerkships are usually four to eight weeks in duration.

Students will have the opportunity to participate as part of a team, and attend rounds and educational conferences. Students will have access to library facilities and other learning resources during their clerkship. We offer free parking and on-call meals.
