Clerkship Information

Fourth year Family Medicine clerkships of 3-4 weeks are available to medical students from LCME (Liaison Committee on Medical Education) accredited or AOA approved medical schools. You will be in the outpatient clinic paired with a faculty or senior resident as your preceptor. One week is spent on the Teaching Service admitting and following patients. You may also apply for a FM Sub-I, which involves three weeks on the Teaching Service and one week in the outpatient clinic. If you would like a taste of a rural practice, we may be able to incorporate some time with two of our graduates in Buena Vista.

Enjoy the many recreational opportunities nearby while you participate in all the educational offerings.
This is a great opportunity to experience the program and see if it is a good fit for you.

We usually have housing available for a nominal fee. Share a house on the St. Mary's Hospital Campus, just steps away from the work, overlooking a beautiful park.

Use the Family Medicine Clerkship Application document to apply. If possible, please submit applications via email. Applications and clerkship inquiries will ONLY be accepted and reviewed from February 1st - August 1st for the following academic year.
