The 6 weeks’ Family Medicine Rotationbegins with an orientation and a guided tour. Medical students receive a welcome packet containing Family Medicine student guide, monthly conference, and rotation schedules. Students also rotate one day per week at a community physician’s office. Medical students have the opportunity to attend daily morning conference, and academic sessions on Wednesdays.
Our program offers the medical students a unique training with varied and rich clinical cases from our diverse populations. Students will perform history and physicals on the office patients and present the case to the attending staff. Students are expected to assist the attending or residents during office procedures (minor surgical procedures). Direct supervision by our attending staff and residents during clinical encounters will provide immediate feedback on history taking, physical examination techniques, and medical plan information. Medical students are nurtured in a close knit small program where they have an open access to faculty.
