Below is a partial list of available electives for Medicine, Pediatrics and Med/Peds:
|Geriatric Medicine||Infectious Disease|
In order to provide an integrated approach to medicine, and coordinate the practice of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, several opportunities exist for subspecialty rotations that provide experience in both areas during the same rotation. Adolescent Medicine, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Disease and Emergency Department experience are included, with more currently in development. The Rural Medicine rotation also offers exposure to medicine for all age groups.
A combined Med/Peds international rotation with a similar aim is also being considered. Med/Peds residents also have the option to rotate with Med/Peds-trained hospitalists. Most electives serve to teach residents sub-specialty consultant skills. As mentioned elsewhere, there are no sub-specialty fellows in Wichita. All sub-specialty electives involve residents working directly with attending physicians for all inpatient consultations, clinic visits, and procedures during the month. It is quite common to see an intern learning Cardiology directly from a sub-specialist with years of experience.
