M2 (Second-Year) Curriculum

Several unique opportunities are offered by the Department of Family Medicine during a medical student's second year of study at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. They include:

Pre-clinical skills workshop/day camp

For those students who would like a short clinical exposure, we will have an opportunity for hands-on experience in a three- to four-day workshop in late May or early June that presents techniques for communication with patients, clinical exam skills and limited procedures.

Introduction to clinical medicine (ICM)

Family Medicine faculty and residents work as preceptors for M2 students as they practice and develop history taking and physical exam skills. These assignments are made by the ICM course director.

Family Medicine leads small-group demonstrations of physical examinations for female breast and GU, male GU, abdomen and musculoskeletal exams and venipuncture procedures.
