The Family Medicine clerkship is a required four-week experience taken during the third year of medical school at the University of Alabama School of Medicine. The clerkship introduces students to the profession of family medicine through clinical experiences with a family physician. Clinical education in Family Medicine is designed to enable students to establish competencies in the family physician's approach to the practice of medicine. The approach emphasizes the provision of medical care for a broad spectrum of patients in an ambulatory setting. The clerkship will provide students the opportunity to strengthen basic skills such as interviewing, history taking, physical examination and physical diagnosis. The assessment and management of both routine and complicated medical conditions will be integrated with the application of the principles of quality, cost-effective health care, patient education, and health promotion.
