The Family Medicine Clerkship is a six-week, community-based, clerkship. Students spend at least 8 patient care sessions each week providing clinical care to patients under the direct supervision of a practicing family physician. These community-based family physicians are called "clerkship faculty" and are members of the College of Medicine's clinical faculty.
The educational goals of the Family Medicine Clerkship include:
The educational content of the Family Medicine Clerkship emphasizes the evaluation and treatment of ambulatory patients with common clinical problems/conditions. Inclusion of other educational content enriches the Clerkship experience, but the Clerkship's core content must focus on improving the student's ability to evaluate, recognize and manage these common clinical problems/conditions in ambulatory patients.
In addition to the clinical experience, students document and analyze their experience via the CDCS system, complete two (2) required clerkship projects and employ self-directed and faculty-directed learning activities to achieve clerkship objectives.
