This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 6 credit hours.  The student will function as a junior intern with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in all of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation.

Students will also rotate on inpatient services with faculty and residents to include medicine and ICU patients, obstetrical and newborns as well as pediatric patients. With the office practice as a base, the family physician serves all aspects of patient care involving both inpatient and outpatient settings, ranging from the hospital to the nursing home. Students are placed with family physicians who practice the full breadth of the discipline, including obstetrical care, whenever feasible. The clerkship is a full-time learning experience, typically mirroring the family physician preceptor and including both weekend responsibilities and night calls.
