Medical Students Working with Local Physicians
Family physicians in eight Illinois communities are hosting students from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine January 30 – February 27. The students are participating in the school’s Family Medicine Preceptorship Program.
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 2018, then pursue advanced training in a specific area of medicine before beginning practice. Since 1981, 2,510 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 care needs through education, patient care, research and service to the community. 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, 2,754 physicians have graduated from its program. For information, call SIU’s main number, 217-545-8000, or visit www.siumed.edu/news.
