FMPC 5098 - FMP Preceptorship

This elective is offered to freshman students who are in their second semester of medical school as an opportunity to shadow a family physician in the day-to-day activities of a private practice of family medicine. The student may choose from a large list of community preceptors located in various sites across the State of Georgia who have agreed to assist in medical student education. This elective provides the student with a supervised teaching experience in the evaluation and management of patients with undifferentiated clinical problems encountered in the practice of Family Medicine. The student will participate in the office practice, hospital rounds, house calls, emergency room visits, and selected community activities. Students enrolled in the preceptorship program must maintain a log of all patient care activities that they experience; including all procedures and major diagnosis. Students will be given the opportunity to expand their skills in doctor-patient communication and physical diagnosis in this clinical setting with direct supervision from their preceptors.
