A Multielement Community Medicine Curriculum for the Family Medicine Clerkship

Date of Review: October, 2018

This intensive curriculum, from MedEdPORTAL, was delivered over approximately 1-1.5 days as part of a Family Medicine clerkship. The curriculum and its learning objectives are clearly described and use a combination of experiential learning, didactics, case-based discussions, and reflective writing. Implementing this curriculum is feasible, but would require intensive faculty assistance to maintain and update community relationships. The curriculum is undergoing changes such as decreasing the amount of reading and didactics, based on student feedback.  Mita Goel, MD, NCEAS and Aashish Didwania, MD, NCEAS
