Family Medicine Rural Clerkship

Students will develop a strong understanding of the clinical issues and professional role of a primary care physician. In addition, the clerkship will train students in the population health perspective by teaching them how to apply the principles of population health and continuous quality improvement in the provision of health care services. 

This program would not be possible without the assistance and teaching of the dedicated physicians and their staff in rural practices across the state, as well as the South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium and its Family Medicine Residency Programs throughout the state. The students and staff at MUSC extend their deepest appreciation to all of these health care professionals.

All third year students at MUSC are required to participate in the clerkship as part of the third year curriculum.
