Do you offer clerkchips, subinternships, or observerships at your program?

We offer inpatient and outpatient clerkships and subinternships with the residency program.  Our most popular medical student rotation is a one month block that is split between the inpatient and outpatient settings: two weeks working in the Family Medicine Center and two weeks on the inpatient family medicine hospital service.  These fill up quickly so if you are interested, contact our administrative assistant, Diep Nguyen, to set it up.  We do not currently offer observership positions.  We are also happy to arrange “second look” opportunities for serious applicants.

Do I need to do a clerkship or sub-internship at your program to have a good chance of matching?

Doing a rotation with us is a great way for you to get to know our program and for us to get to know you.  The more information we all have, the better we’ll be able to determine if we are a good fit.  That said, a rotation with us is neither expected nor required.  We prefer to see applicants who have used their third and fourth year elective time to deepen their exposure to various areas of medicine rather than doing a string of family medicine “audition” rotations.

Does your program accept applications from international medical graduates?

We accept applications from international medical graduates through ERAS.  Demonstration of supervised clinical practice in the United States is required for applicants being considered.
