Description
Family medicine preceptorship under physicians in family practice, in a model family practice unit (other than O’Connor Hospital), located in urban, suburban, or rural areas. The preceptor may be in private practice or in a health care center. Special opportunities are available in Indian Health Service settings, especially in South Dakota and New Mexico. The experience includes health supervision and primary medical care. It may include minor surgery and obstetrics under the supervision of the preceptor. The focus is family-oriented ambulatory care with minimal hospital experience. Team functioning and home visits are desirable. Visits with other health professionals and to community resources are important parts of the clerkship.
