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 sub-internship 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. - Midnight; must attend morning rounds following call but will have the afternoon off 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.
