During the four-week Family Medicine Clerkship, third-year medical students at Indiana University School of Medicine work side-by-side with practicing physicians in urban cities, small towns and rural areas throughout Indiana. Students meet patients who present with acute medical problems as well as those who are chronically ill or may need preventive health education and witness first-hand how patients interact with their personal physician.
Upon completion of the Family Medicine Clerkship, medical students are able to complete the following tasks. These training objectives align with the IU School of Medicine MD Curriculum Competencies and Institutional Learning Objectives. This alignment enables faculty and students to understand how current student learning prepares them for the next stage in training and for their ongoing practice and maintenance of certification.
