Students must complete a total of 32 weeks of credit during their fourth year. Specifically, all students must take a defined number of weeks within each elective grouping:
Acting Internships (other schools called sub-interns or sub-Is) is a four-week experience for the student to practice being an intern under the careful supervision of an attending physician and senior level resident physician. Acting Interns (AI) are
the primary caregiver for these patients, performing the history and physical, creating a differential, then writing the orders, and managing the patient’s care. The AI also participates in potential call, potential cross coverage, and patient
care transitions just like any other first year resident. Students are required to take an acting internship in Internal Medicine as well as taking a second acting internship from a specialty/discipline of their choice: surgery, pediatrics, family
medicine, anesthesiology, obstetrics, gynecology, neurology, psychiatry, emergency medicine or internal medicine. AIs must be completed in Cincinnati.
