The Department of Family Medicine offers one required course, its third-year Family Medicine Clerkship, as well as a wide array of acting internships, selectives, and electives. The department also also coordinates the Texas Statewide Family Medicine Preceptorship Program for UTMB Health.
Take a look at the department's course list today.
The Department of Family Medicine sponsors two student interest
groups, the Family Medicine Interest Group (FMIG) and Students for
Integrative Medicine (SIM), and is also involved in the UTMB Health
chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA).
The FMIG is an active group, meeting monthly and hosting outreach
events as well as procedure workshops for students to sharpen their
skills under the guidance of Department of Family Medicine faculty and
residents. For more information about the group and to join in, please
visit their Facebook page.
The SIM group has recently undergone a renewal under the leadership
of a driven group of interested students. For more information about
joining SIM and their activities, please contact Petra Kelsey, a student
in the UTMB Health School of Medicine.
AMSA has strong roots at UTMB Health, and the UTMB chapter focuses on
community service and enhancing medical student education. If you are
interested in joining the UTMB Health chapter of AMSA, please email the
group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
