Medical Student

Clerkships/Fourth-Year Electives/Sub-Internships

Medical school students who wish to apply for a rotation outside the Family Medicine Residency Program, should visit the Student Rotations page.


Medical students can gain clinical experience in family medicine — including its philosophy of holistic care, goals and practice objectives — that will help in career decisions through our clerkship and subinternship opportunities.

At Floyd, students will learn the opportunities available to a family physician, the continuity of care and awareness of the many patient situations. Our program provides students with hands-on experience through on-call opportunities at least once per week. Students follow the on-call schedule below:

  • Third-year and Fourth-year: 5:30 p.m. - 6 a.m.; relieved of duties by 6:30 a.m. and are off the remainder of the day following call.

Our program offers many unique experiences that will help you get the most out of your rotations at Floyd. We are here to help you learn and gain the experience you need to continue your goal of becoming a physician.
