AAC & RCC Blocks - Description



During your 8-week primary care clinical experience, you will learn the elements of patient-centered clinical care and apply it to all patient interactions. We want you to see how community care, chronic care, and preventive care are provided and how the context of patients and the context of the preceptor's practice can influence care.
The range of ages, conditions, care settings, and acuity of problems is what sets this educational experience apart.
You will split your time between a primary care office in the Denver metropolitan area (4-week AAC Block) and a family medicine practice setting in a rural Colorado location (4-week RCC Block). There are 18 common signs, symptoms, and clinical problems and two physical exam skills you will cover during the 8-week combined (AAC-RCC) rotation.
