    631. Family Medicine. This clerkship is designed to introduce the third-year medical student to the concepts of family medicine.

    The six-week experience includes a four-week preceptorship based in the office of a family physician in private practice within the state. This is a one-to-one student preceptor teaching arrangement, the preceptor being the clinical instructor with the Department of Family Medicine.

    Students are matched with preceptors outside the Jackson metropolitan area. Board and lodging can be arranged for the students. There is a one-day orientation and instruction period by departmental faculty to prepare the student for the preceptorship.

    During the remaining two weeks, the student works with Department of Family Medicine faculty and residents in the in-patient setting at Mississippi Baptist Medical Center. The final day of the rotation is reserved for testing of knowledge and clinical skills.
