Internal Medicine Sub-Internship Elective

The four-week inpatient internal medicine sub-internship rotation provides students with advanced training in the care of hospitalized patients. Students are involved as active participants in the care of patients and are integrated into the WSU Internal Medicine Residency Program – Everett.


Students will work under the direct supervision of attending hospitalist physicians as part of an academic team with direct supervision provided by a hospitalist attending, and residents from the Internal Medicine Residency Program – Everett. Students will participate in didactic activities alongside residents such as case conferences and weekly academic half-day sessions.

Training Site

Students will complete their Sub-I elective rotation at Providence Regional Medical Center of Everett (PRMCE). PRMCE is a 580-bed referral center for the five surrounding Washington state counties of Snohomish, Island, San Juan, Skagit and Whatcom. Clinical services include all relevant adult health care services except for organ transplant. As the primary training site for the WSU Internal Medicine Residency Program – Everett, PRMCE has designated program specific spaces including a resident lounge, residency and faculty workrooms, administration offices and conference rooms for didactic learning.
