Family Medicine Clerkship
The Family Medicine Clerkship is a mandatory rotation for all third-year medical students at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. The length of this experience is four weeks. It is organized to provide each student an ambulatory learning experience in a family physician’s office. During this rotation, the emphasis is placed on ambulatory aspects of medicine, continuity of care and highlighting the importance of each individual patient’s feelings, perceptions, beliefs, and medical needs. Care is focused both on the prevention and treatment of illnesses.
