    I have been looking at some books with profiles about medical schools. They have descriptions of the 3rd and 4th year required rotations and there is always one called "medicine." I don't want to sound stupid, but what does this refer to?

    Medicine is usually an 8-12 week rotation, primarily or exclusively in the hospital (unlike the average Internist's practice, which usually is primarily in the clinic) where you deal with very ill general medical patients, and ones that fall under the medicine subspecialties (at some hospitals, you spend all the time in general medicine, and see medical subspecialties in 4th year electives). Subspecialties include cardiology, rheumatology, endocrinology, allergy, infectious disease.... Basically any non-surgical, not psychology, pediatrics, family practice, neurology or ob-gyn (which is considered surgery) part of doctoring.

    Here is the KU "medicine" rotation description. I thought it might help.

    Cheers,
