Sub-internship in Anesthesiology

Rotation Description

The sub-internship is a 3-week rotation, with specific objectives, designed primarily for fourth-year medical students interested in a broad, in-depth anesthesia experience.

Each sub-intern is assigned to the main operating room (MOR) at the Ronald Reagan UCLA medical center for 2 weeks.

Each sub-intern is also assigned to the operating room at UCLA-Santa Monica Hospital or the 200 Medical Plaza Ambulatory Surgery Center for one week. Requests by students without transportation to remain at the Westwood campus will be considered if such requests are made at the time of enrollment. These requests will be honored on a first come, first served basis.

To promote continuity, each sub-intern will be paired with a specific anesthesiology resident for a consecutive week’s clinical assignments and will be expected to participate on a daily basis in the preoperative evaluation of the next day’s patients and the morning’s OR set-up.

In order to pursue unique educational opportunities, interested sub-interns may request assignments with specific anesthesia residents, faculty members, or subspecialty services. This must be coordinated through the Anesthesiology Education Office.

Evening or overnight call is not required but is allowed to take advantage of educational opportunities that typically vary throughout the day. If call is desired, it should ideally be taken with the assigned resident. The duty hour policy for sub-interns is identical to the policy for residents. If, while on call, a sub-intern is released by the assigned resident prior to 8:30 PM, that sub-intern may return the following morning for 6:30 AM assignment by the anesthesia resident-in-charge (the anesthesia team captain).
