4. Narrative Comment:

Many electives outside the Department of Family Medicine are listed because family practice draws on many disciplines. The student should choose electives to build on skills already acquired or learn new skills not yet acquired but needed for family practice. The student may also consider an externship in family practice at a location similar to one in which he or she eventually hopes to train and/or practice. For example, a student interested in working in a rural area may want to do a rotation in a rural family practice residency program or Indian Health Service clinic.
