SIU Med Students Working with Local Physicians
Family physicians in nine Illinois communities are hosting students from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine June 3 – June 28, 2013. The students are participating in the School’s Family Medicine Preceptorship Program. [See list below.]
The experience provides an opportunity for students to use their medical knowledge in an office setting under the supervision of an experienced physician. The students choose from more than 160 family practice physicians in Illinois for their preceptorship experience. They will graduate from medical school in May 2014 and then pursue advanced training in a specific area of medicine before beginning practice. Since 1981, 2,236 students have participated in the program, which is offered by the School’s Department of Family and Community Medicine.
Established in 1970, the mission of SIU School of Medicine is to assist the people of central and southern Illinois in meeting their health needs through education, patient care, research and community service. An international leader in medical education, the School is based in Carbondale and Springfield and is specifically oriented to educating new physicians prepared to practice in Illinois. Since opening, 2,550 physicians have graduated from its program. For information, call SIU’s main number, 217-545-8000, or visit www.siumed.edu/news.
