Practice of Clinical Medicine

Thanks to our alumni and community physicians, first- and second-year students in the medical school have the chance to interact with patients as early as their first month on campus-putting newly gained knowledge to use in a hands-on environment.

The school’s Practice of Clinical Medicine (PCM) program pairs each student with a preceptor in the community for two afternoons a month. Of the more than 200 preceptors who participate in the PCM course, nearly half are M.D. or housestaff alums of the medical school. See Practice of Clinical Medicine to learn more about this program.

If you are interested in becoming a preceptor, contact:
