Information is provided on family practice clerkships (25 available at the time of publication in California and 1 in Nevada) to assist students in choosing a clerkship. For each clerkship, information is presented on the following: school/course, residency affiliation, site, address and phone number, clerkship director, clerkship coordinator, contact person, course information, student's experience, faculty and facilities, patient population, student's evaluation of clerkship, and miscellaneous features. Specific course information includes: application period, length of clerkship rotations, number of students per rotation/block, language requirement, prerequisites for clerkship, and number of entering residents that completed a clerkship at the site. Additional information is given on: goals and objectives for the student, model 1-week schedule of clerk, number of patients seen by student per day, percent of student's time spent in inpatient and outpatient care, and whether there are family practice conferences and, if so, the typical content. Information on the clinical layout of the facilities and specific types of service areas (i.e, x-ray, pharmacy, patient education facilities) is included. A chart indicates types and number of providers, contact with students, and whether the provider is responsible for direct supervision. The age distribution, racial mix, and socioeconomic distribution of the patient population are indicated, and commonly stated strengths and weaknesses of the clerkship, as perceived by students, are listed.
