Catalog Description:  This is a 4-week, outpatient experience in Family Medicine working in Family Medicine clinics with practicing family physicians and their clinic teams. The core of the rotation is 15 days spent in the clinic (except the first Monday and every Wednesday). This is a very hands-on, active patient contact clerkship. Students will spend their clinical time either at a residency clinic or at a community/private practice clinic. Students are actively involved in direct patient care, with the
expectation that they are directly involved in over 50% of patient encounters in a given day and writing 2+ notes per half-day. During the 4 weeks, students also attend weekly seminars and didactic skills workshops on Wednesday mornings. In addition, there is a comprehensive online/virtual curriculum.
