Description
In the Continuity of Care Clerkship, students work with a preceptor in any field of medicine, including Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and other sub-specialties. They are released from other clerkships for one afternoon a week for a total of four afternoons per period. Three afternoons students to report to clinic, one afternoon is reserved for the monthly Continuity of Care Conference consisting of student and MD presentations. Students participating in this clerkship work with one faculty preceptor and his/her patients for 9 months. This continuity experience allows students to establish a mentoring relationship with their preceptor, to see a cohort of patients repeatedly, gain insight into patient care and chronic disease management over time, develop and carry out a QI or similar project, and develop a deeper understanding of their specialty of choice.
