Note: Dates are subject to change at the discretion of the internship leadership team and health system leadership. Interns are usually in rotation Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week. Class Days typically occur on Wednesdays of each week, with a few exceptions. Exact dates for specific rotations, class day presentations, cooking demos, outpatient round table discussions, and community involvement activities will vary intern to intern. An example schedule is available upon request.
