FME 45011 - Community Family Medicine


Cr Hrs: 3, 6
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3 or 6 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. The primary purpose of this clinical experience is for fourth year medical students to actively participate in ambulatory and/or hospital patient care in a family practice setting. Possible practice sites may include urban or rural FM clinics, nursing homes, patient homes, emergency rooms and hospitals. Student responsibilities will include interviewing patients, conducting physical examinations, reviewing laboratory and diagnostic data and developing management plans in conjunction with the preceptor. The student will participate in office or hospital-based procedures which depend on the preceptor’s practice. This rotation differs from the FM JI in that students will likely be placed with a community preceptor and spend more time in an ambulatory setting.
