As part of the Introduction to Clinical Medicine program, this community-based focus experience is designed to introduce medical students to the challenges and rewards of community-based primary care by providing them with the opportunities to spend a day observing doctors and their medical staff, conducting patient histories and physical exams, among other learning experiences. Furthermore, the geriatrics community-based experience is designed to introduce medical students to community-based geriatric and ambulatory care through a day in an assisted-living facility. Students are given practical education and opportunities to evaluate geriatric patients in their homes, perform mental status exams and medication assessments, as well as safety and ADL/IADL assessments.
