M3 (Third-Year) Curriculum

  • FM 631. FAMILY MEDICINE PRECEPTORSHIP. This clerkship is designed to introduce the third-year medical student to the concepts of family medicine.

    The six-week experience includes a four-week preceptorship based in the office of a family physician in private practice outside of the Jackson metropolitan area, but within the state. Housing can be arranged for students. There is a one-to-one student/preceptor teaching arrangement. The preceptor is an affiliate faculty member with the Department of Family Medicine.

    There is a 1-1/2 day orientation and instruction period by departmental faculty to prepare the student for the preceptorship. During the remaining two weeks, the students work with family medicine department faculty and residents at the Flowood Family Medical Center or Lakeland Family Medical Center. The final day of the rotation is reserved for block review and testing.
