FAMILY MEDICINE CLERKSHIP
The Family Medicine Clerkship is a six-week, six-credit-hour required clerkship in the third year. Students care for ambulatory patients under the supervision of faculty members and residents for two weeks in the Family Medicine Center at Palmetto Health Richland or the Center for Family Medicine at Greenville Memorial Hospital. Ultrasound technology is available at both campuses and is utilized during this part of the clerkship. Students participate for two weeks as integral members of a team that provides care to hospitalized patients on the family medicine inpatient service. In these settings, students perform initial work-ups on new patients and care for patients with acute and chronic problems; they also have the opportunity for collaboration with nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health professionals. In addition, all students spend two weeks in the office of a practicing physician where they experience health care delivery as it is provided in a community family practice. A variety of settings is utilized from rural sites to suburban and urban sites.
