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.
