Abrazo Family Medicine Residency Medical Student Rotations

Abrazo Family Medicine Residency Program offers medical student rotations for professionals with the desire to specialize in Family Medicine.

Our residency offers outpatient clerkships in the Family Medicine Residency Clinic. Sub-internships are also available rotations in hospital medicine at Abrazo Central Campus. Students are afforded significant responsibility and attentive teaching from Family Medicine residents and faculty.

Learn more about the Family Medicine Clerkship and Sub-Internship below.

Family Medicine Clerkship

The Family Medicine Residency Clinic at Abrazo Central Campus provides in-depth training with residents and faculty.

  • Patient volume is high
  • Students care for the full spectrum of patients and conditions, including challenging acute and chronic conditions from neonates to geriatrics
  • Students will provide health education, preventative care, acute and chronic care, as well as prenatal care and perform procedures

We believe students learn best by doing, not watching. With our supervision, students evaluate patients independently and review their plans with senior residents and faculty. Students are expected to learn effective presentations and treatment plans.

The clinic offers computerized access to clinical information and patient education handouts. Faculty and Medical Staff provide noon conferences on Monday through Thursday and weekly Wednesday afternoon didactics. Continuity of care for our patients can provide experiences in the hospital, as well as opportunities in sports medicine, geriatrics, colposcopy, colonoscopy, wound care, auricular acupuncture and OB ultrasound.
