Message from the Director of Medical Student Education

It has been an exciting and productive year in the Medical Student Education Division. Here are some recent accomplishments:


- The Family Medicine Clerkship continues to be a top-rated course at the medical school. Under the leadership of new faculty member, Jordan White, we have added excellent skills workshops in out-patient procedures and women’s reproductive health. Thank you to all of our community faculty who continue to teach on a regular basis!

- In January 2014, six members of the department, a former AMS student, and a local high school teacher attended and presented at the STFM Medical Student Education Conference in Nashville, TN. All-in-all, we gave seven presentations on a range of topics, including:

  • Medical student advising
  • Brain friendly learning
  • Reflective narrative in medical student education
  • Student engagement through an outstanding community project at Central Falls High School
  • A novel clinical skills clerkship
  • Supporting community preceptors to teach medical students

- Fourteen students matched in Family Medicine in the 2013 graduating class. This is the largest number (and the largest percentage) in recent history! Nine students from the current fourth year class are applying in Family Medicine (as well as two other recent graduates). We are hopeful for even more in the class of 2015!


While there have been successes, there is no time to rest. We will continue to work to attract the best and the brightest to Family Medicine and to demonstrate our specialty's leadership throughout the medical school community.
