Mercy Graduate Medical Education - Family Medicine Rotation Opportunities

Inpatient Rotation

Inpatient or sub-internship rotations are granted to fourth year medical students who intend to enter a career in family medicine. The rotation is available year round.

For the sub-internship, the student will spend the week working with the Family Medicine Inpatient Team. The sub-internship involves working with our family medicine inpatient team with the expectation of caring for 2-3 patients daily and doing at least one admission per day. In addition the student may be assigned night shifts throughout the rotation or on a date of his or her choosing.

Ambulatory Rotation

Third-year medical students are assigned their required clerkships from local affiliated medical schools. Fourth-year medical students may apply for an audition ambulatory rotation between August and January and must be interested in family medicine as a career. The ambulatory rotation takes place in the family medicine clinic. The student will be under direct supervision of senior residents and faculty.


  • Introduce the student to the philosophical and practical aspects of Family Medicine.
  • Provide an opportunity for the student to begin developing the knowledge and skills needed to provide comprehensive primary care.

Regarding rotation opportunities for international medical graduates/students, our program does not sponsor externships or observerships.  Applications of current international medical students will be considered, contingent upon the student being a permanent resident or U.S. citizen, and subject to availability and our current commitments to U.S. medical schools.

Students interested in applying for a rotation should contact the program coordinator:
