Undergraduate Medical Education
The clinical training of medical students in their third and fourth years
is no longer confined to academic medical centers. Community hospitals
like the Baton Rouge General offer students opportunities to participate
in the care of persons with a wide diversity of medical and surgical conditions.
Moreover, students are able to learn from seasoned mentors who possess
clinical competence at the expert or master levels. In addition to furthering
students' knowledge along with the development of fundamental skill
sets necessary for subsequent training years, emphasis is placed on written
and oral communication techniques and effective interactions with team
members of other healthcare disciplines.
The Graduate Medical Education department oversees affiliation agreements
and provides support to medical students rotating with attending physicians
at Baton Rouge General. Baton Rouge General offers a comprehensive selection
of clinical rotations to third and fourth year medical students. Our diverse
patient population, spread across two campuses, provides an ideal clinical
setting for students to develop general knowledge in areas of patient
diagnosis and management. During their third year clerkships, students
are provided with broad clinical exposure to major medical and surgical
subspecialties. Fourth year sub-internships and elective rotations offer
in-depth experience in a specific field with greater patient care responsibilities.
Baton Rouge General accepts medical student rotation applications at any
time during the year. Applying medical students must be third or fourth
year students attending a university that has an affiliation agreement
with Baton Rouge General. Once your application has been submitted and
reviewed, we will notify you of the status of your application.
