Q&A with Stanford Anesthesia's Residency Director

July 2015

Comments and feedback about the categorical internship from PGY1s just finishing

Question: What feedback did the current interns provide about the internship?
---"Very strong clinical training across all major specialties of medicine"
---"Strengths include patient complexity, diversity of hospital sites (VA, County hospital, Stanford), patient population and disease"
---"Do the internship if you want to learn medicine"
---"Good medicine training, everyone is very nice, many inpatient months with call"
---"Very great experience especially getting to know Stanford. The medicine department is very welcoming"
---"With a few small exceptions (preop instead of continuity clinic, 1 mth of anesthesia) you are treated just like all of the other medicine interns, which means you will work hard and learn a lot, and will get to know an awesome group of people all around the hospital"
---"Solid medicine foundation"
---"Great to already feel fully integrated to Stanford life"
---"Absolutely recommend the Stanford internship. The medicine interns work hard but its great learning. I got to know my co-interns"
---"A big strength is that we are treated exactly the same as other medicine interns. The administration is focused on learning. Well prepared. Worth it."
