Welcome to the Oakland Internal Medicine Clerkship page! We have a very active clerkship program and include our medical students in every aspect of their patient’s care. Medical students have lively small group sessions each week with our Program Director, Dr Tom Baudendistel, Assistant Program Director Dr Aubrey Ingraham, other faculty and the chief residents. Our residents enjoy the additional teaching opportunity and camaraderie the students add to the team.

We have 4th year medical students in:

  • General Medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Critical Care
  • Pulmonary
  • Rheumatology
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • Nephrology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Gastroenterology
  • Neurology

Medical students have direct patient care responsibilities and in addition to the weekly small group sessions with the Program Director, they attend teaching conferences including:

  • Daily Reports
  • Noon Conferences
  • Inpatient Teaching Rounds
  • Pathology Rounds
  • Journal Club and Chiefs’ Rounds

What our residents are saying:

"I have really enjoyed the past month and wanted to thank my team, the residents at Kaiser and everyone else who helped make this a wonderful experience. I had some of the best teaching and definitely met the best group of residents that I have encountered during my time in Medical school. Thank you and I hope to work with you in the future. "
