Family Primary Care: Practicum III
The clinical practicum is designed to prepare the students to provide primary health care for patients, families, and communities in a variety of settings. Initially, the student will obtain complete histories, perform physical examinations, and developmental assessments. Subsequently, the student will focus on the recognition and management of common problems. The clinical experience will familiarize the student with age-appropriate physical, cognitive, and emotional development as well as routine and episodic care. The goal of the practicum is to prepare the students for the delivery of family focused primary care.
