The six-week clerkship provides students with faculty-supervised exposure to the evaluation and management of patients in ambulatory settings of family and community medicine with undifferentiated health needs and chronic conditions.

Students are introduced to the evaluation and management of health problems routinely encountered by primary care and family physicians. The fundamentals of Patient- and Family-Centered Care (PFCC) and clinical problem-solving is emphasized in all patient-care encounters.
