FME 45010 - Advanced 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 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. This clerkship allows students to function as junior interns by assuming substantial patient responsibility on an inpatient teaching service. Available to students may be ambulatory patient care and office exposure to outpatient procedures. Responsibilities may include admission, histories, physicals, daily notes, and treatment plans. Students will be supervised by residents and Family Medicine faculty. The student will be directly supervised and guided through this process by members of the clinical faculty and approved preceptors. The student can expect opportunities for “hands on” experiences and for improving their clinical skills, both in history taking and in physical and laboratory examination as they pertain to medical problems common to Family Medicine.
