The Fort Collins Family Medicine Residency Program offers 4-week
clerkships to medical students from LCME-accredited or
AOA-approved medical schools. Clerkships are available for
fourth-year students (August through February).
To qualify, clerkship applicants must also be applying to our
program for a PGY-1 position. Your interview will be scheduled
the final day of your clerkship.
Our focus is to provide students with an excellent experience in
family medicine and extensive opportunity to become acquainted
with our residency program and its faculty, residents, and
Students will work with as many different faculty and residents
as possible, in several different environments:
- Inpatient adult medicine rounds.
- Outpatient family medicine clinic.
- Poudre Valley Prenatal (PVP) Clinic.
- Lifestyle medicine, counseling and wellness.
- Nursing home visits.
- Procedure clinic.
Students have an opportunity to follow patients in continuity --
from hospital admission to outpatient follow up (or vice-versa)
-- usually seeing the patients first and then precepting with
residents and faculty.
Students participate in three weeknight calls (5 p.m. to 10
p.m.), and one weekend call (7 a.m. to 10 p.m.) in order to
experience our night-float call system and enhance opportunities
for initial patient evaluations.
We want our visiting students to have both a quality family
medicine experience and the opportunity to enjoy activities in
Fort Collins and the Colorado-Wyoming region. We hope the
clerkship experience will be both rewarding and fun.
Requirements to be considered for a clerkship are:
