The residents in the 17 counties we serve have an essential role in the curriculum for our students. They provide the foundational content for community care and wellbeing by allowing our students into their primary care physician offices and exam rooms. Our students develop meaningful, personal relationships with community members as patients, while they progress through the curriculum. This essential experience facilitates student development as they become empathetic, community-based physicians while furthering our commitment to improve the quality of care throughout our region and state.


Our Family Centered Experience (FCE) Program

The goal of the FCE program is for the medical student to learn the human aspect and personal family experiences that arise from managing a chronic, serious illness, or disability.
