What are the goals of the clerkship?The goals of the clerkship are for every medical student to:
- have point-of-care training in a family doctor's office
- demonstrate competence in the core knowledge and skills of family medicine
- understand the role of the family physician
Additionally, students will recognize that high quality information, balanced with patient preferences and clinical judgement, is the basis for intelligent decision making. Developing an understanding of the intellectual process and acquiring the skills for life-long learning will assist students in achieving the goals of the Family Medicine Clerkship.
