Medical students training with local physicians (January)

Published Date:

Family physicians in six Illinois communities are hosting students from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine throughout January. 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 a clinic 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 2021, then pursue advanced training in a specific area of medicine before beginning practice. Since 1981, 2,686 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 1975, 2,953 physicians have earned SIU medical degrees. For information, call SIU Medicine’s main number, 217-545-8000, or visit www.siumed.edu.
