Third Year Clerkship (FMED731)

The Department of Family Medicine Clerkship is an eight-week rotation for WVU Third Year Medical Students that provides an opportunity to enhance clinical and interpersonal skills in a learning environment that is supportive and stimulating. During the eight weeks students have the opportunity to experience Family Medicine at one of three clinical campuses that include Morgantown, Charleston and Eastern. Students will also spend four weeks at a community site working with an experienced Board Certified Family Medicine Physician with WVU School of Medicine Faculty Appointment.

Family Medicine is very broad in scope and can be academically challenging with patients that are diverse and healthcare issues that are always expanding. The Clerkship program is designed to teach students a logical and compassionate approach to caring for these patients. During the program you will be challenged by participating in emergency and acute care management, chronic disease management, preventative care, and wellness promotion. You will be supported by our faculty in your development of new skills and common outpatient procedures.
