Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine’s (DFM) Medical Student Education (MSE) program. MSE is dedicated to supporting the mission areas of clinical service, education, research, and community service by promoting core family medicine ideals at all levels of our institution. The program’s primary role is to develop, implement, and evaluate innovative instructional programs within the DFM and the SOM.

Our program is involved in mentoring, advising, and providing educational offerings in the SOM, as well as in community education and inter-professional opportunities. We also play an important role in ensuring that our clinical faculty have the most current resources and training available.

The MSE program includes a primary care curriculum consisting of two clinical clerkships, an integrated longitudinal medicine clerkship (ILMC), and a mentored scholarly activity program (MSA). Additionally, there are student interest groups, a robust rural track program, and a number of diverse electives ranging from providing clinical service to homeless patients in the Stout Street Clinic to an international FM program.

Thank you for visiting.
