UTMB 3rd Year Internal Medicine Clerkship (outpatient portion)

Every third year medical student at UTMB is required to take the Internal Medicine Clerkship.  The entire course is 12 weeks. The inpatient portion is eight weeks and the outpatient portion is four weeks (with a volunteer community teaching physician).

Community Teaching Physician Qualifications

  • MD or DO

  • Board certified in Internal Medicine (generalist or specialist)
  • Current license to practice in Texas
  • No disparaging marks on the Texas State Medical Board

Community Teaching Physician commitment per student
4.5 days each week for 4 weeks

If the student is placed with an IM specialist, please let UTMB know 3 weeks prior to the start of the Term.  We will make sure to assign different IM specialties for the student's 2 months of inpatient service.

Please get an email address from the IM preceptors so that we may send reminders of the student evaluations the preceptors now fill out online.  We are no longer using paper copies for student evaluations.
