Classroom to Clinic: First-years in the Field
The UNC School of Medicine’s Clinical Week pulls medical students out of the classroom and sends them to communities across North Carolina to gain medical knowledge and develop clinical skills through interaction with primary care physicians and their patients.
From March 7 – 11, more than 100 first-year medical students went to communities in more than 50 counties across North Carolina. From Highlands in the west to Morehead City in the east, they worked alongside primary care physicians, or community preceptors, who helped them develop and enhance their skills. At the same time, more than 70 first-year medical students participated in clinical week in Chapel Hill, at UNC Hospitals and its clinics.
