The Department of Family Medicine is integrally involved in medical student training throughout the four years of medical school, beginning with teaching the comprehensive history and physical in Introduction to Clinical Medicine I (ICM), continuing through the other five ICM courses with development of skills in skills in differential diagnosis, SOAP note and prescription writing, and receive evidence-based medicine & biostatistics, and exposure to the business of medicine. In accordance with the comprehensive nature of family medicine, all systems of the body are discussed in a case-based format across the age span, carefully integrating the art of medicine and osteopathic principles, in addition to the concepts of medical diagnosis and treatment of common disease entities. The Clinical Ethics and Medical Jurisprudence course is also facilitated by the Department. There are two core clinical clerkships in family medicine for all third year students. Students also have the opportunity to experience family medicine in their primary care and rural rotations, giving them ample opportunity to experience fully integrated, comprehensive, osteopathic clinical medicine for all ages. Most family medicine rotations are office-based which gives students a one-on-one working relationship with the preceptor. Specialty-specific small and large group lectures are provided by department faculty throughout the clinical years, as well as facilitated OSCE experiences. The Family Medicine Department also oversees elective rotations including, but not limited to, Public Health/Preventative Medicine, Rehabilitation Medicine, Sports Medicine, Dermatology, Addiction Medicine, and international experiences.
