Third Year Clerkship (FMED731)

The Department of Family Medicine Clerkship is an eight-week rotation for WVU Third Year Medical Students. This includes four weeks of instruction at WVU and four weeks of rural ambulatory care with a WV Board Certified Family Medicine Physician having WVU Faculty Appointment.

Family Medicine faculty are assigned to designated students to assist with their educational training and development. The faculty advisor will meet with their student twice during the four weeks while in Morgantown. A discussion of the clerkship expectations will be reviewed at those sessions as well as the student’s performance while on the rotation.

Each student will select a Family Medicine related topic to present to their classmates and advisors sharing update treatments and medical findings. This fifteen-minute power point presentation will be scheduled when in Morgantown.

Students will see patients in our clinic and complete seven days on the inpatient service at Ruby Memorial Hospital. Students are assigned three nights of call with our residents during the four weeks. Weekends and holidays are not excluded from call.  Clerkship Description
