OBJECTIVES/DESCRIPTION OF CLERKSHIP:

The clinical clerkship in the Womack Family Medicine Residency Clinic is oriented toward ambulatory medicine and stresses primary, continuing and comprehensive health care to Soldiers, Retirees and their Families.  During a typical 4 week rotation, students will spend 3 weeks in the outpatient clinic and one week on the Family Medicine Inpatient Team.  During the inpatient week the student will participate in overnight call at least one time and will also be expected to work on the weekend.  Rotating students will be given direct patient responsibilities commensurate with their level of training. In the outpatient clinic, the student will see 6 - 12 patients per day and will be supervised by board certified Family Physicians or senior Family Medicine residents.  Outpatient clinic hours are 0800-1630.  Morning report is conducted daily from 0715-0800.   On Wednesday mornings, rotators will participate in the residency didactic lecture series.  MS4 students (optional for MS3) will give one 30 minute case-based presentation during their rotation.
