Abstract

The internal medicine (IM) subinternship has been a long-established clinical experience in the final phase of medical school deemed by key stakeholders as a crucial rotation to prepare senior medical students for internship. Medical education has changed greatly since the first national curriculum for this course was developed in 2002 by the Clerkship Directors in Internal Medicine (CDIM). Most notably, competency-based medical education (CBME) has become a fixture in graduate medical education and has gradually expanded into medical school curricula. Still, residency program directors and empirical studies have identified gaps and inconsistencies in knowledge and skills among new interns. Recognizing these gaps, the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (APDIM) surveyed its members in 2010 and identified four core skills essential for intern readiness. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) also published 13 core entrustable professional activities (EPAs) for entering residency to be expected of all medical school graduates. Results from the APDIM survey along with the widespread adoption of CBME informed this redesign of the IM subinternship curriculum. The authors provide an overview of this new guide developed by the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM) Medical Student-to-Resident Interface Committee (MSRIC).
