Elective Description

This elective is intended to achieve several goals: 1) provide an in-depth exposure to both in-patient and out-patient family medicine, 2) increase basic medical interviewing skills and medical facts, 3) allow the students to work closely with family medicine residents at all levels of training, and 4) give students who are interested in this residency an opportunity to demonstrate their interest and skills to our faculty.
