Department of Urology

Visiting Student Sub-Internship Program

Application Season – January 11, 2019 through March 1, 2019

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The sub-internship program at the University of Washington is designed to give medical students who are interested in matching in urology exposure to our program while providing an immersive educational experience. Sub-interns at the University of Washington function as members of the surgical team, participating in outpatient clinics, inpatient care, emergency procedures, and the operating room.

Traditionally, sub-interns spend a total of four weeks in two different affiliated hospitals in order to achieve the highest level of education and clinical experience possible, but the experience can vary depending on availability. The four participating locations include:

Sub-interns are expected to give a 10 minute presentation in an area of urology of their choice near the end of their rotation, and to complete an end of rotation written examination. To be considered for an honors grade, the sub-intern must complete a separate 14 question examination available on the class website. This online exam is reviewed and graded by the Director of the Clerkship Program. All visiting students doing a sub-internship in urology will have their formal urology residency interview held during their rotation with a follow up phone interview with the Residency Program Director in November.
