Primary Rotation and Subintership
The Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center offers both third year (primary rotation) and fourth year (subinternship) electives in Neurology through the Harvard Medical School. Students from other institutions are frequently accepted for rotations at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
The third year rotation may be either on the ward or consult service. Students work closely with neurology residents to learn to examine, evaluate, and treat new patients. All new patients seen by the student are presented to the attending at teaching rounds. Students generally attend the scheduled conferences including neuroradiology, neuropathology, EEG, Grand Rounds, and a Clinical Case Conference. Two teaching rounds are provided two mornings per week, and a series of didactic lectures aimed at the medical student level are organized with chief residents.
Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center accepts a limited number of students each year from outside Harvard, including students from foreign countries, for neurology rotations. All students doing rotations at BIDMC must register with Harvard Medical School and pay medical school tuition to Harvard.
