The faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine is actively involved in the education of our osteopathic students from the first year in which they begin to learn the fundamentals of internal medicine. Our faculty has key roles in teaching and design of the systems courses including Introduction to Disease , Immunity and Therapeutics, Blood and Lymphatics, Musculoskeletal System, Endocrine System, Cardiovascular System, Renal System, Respiratory system, and Gastrointestinal system and Nutrition, see student handbook (page 43). We also provide a structured curriculum for the third and fourth-year students while they are in their internal medicine clerkships. COMP requires twelve weeks on an internal medicine clerkship in a student’s third year and a four week sub-internship in their fourth year.
COMP sponsors numerous internal medicine residencies where many of our students rotate. These include:
- Arrowhead Regional Medical Center
- College Medical Center
- Community Memorial Health System
- Samaritan Health Services
