This elective is specifically designed for 3rd and 4th year medical students planning to apply for urology residency. The student electing the subinternship will be responsible for the same activities stated in Urol 680P with the additional duties of managing inpatient workups and therapeutic plans. It is anticipated that he/she will rotate night and emergency calls with the other house officers and will be considered an integral part of the service team. It is expected that the subintern will function as a member of the urology housestaff. The subintern will also be given an opportunity to deliver a 10 minute presentation to the urology department on a urology topic of their choice.

Enrollment: 5 per rotation
