Abstract

During the 1992–1993 academic year at the Medical College of Georgia, 60 students (33%) participated in a 1-month Ambulatory Care Block rotation as part of their 3-month Medicine Clerkship. Sixty-percent of the students’ time was spent in General Internal Medicine and 40% in the subspecialties of Medicine and in Dermatology. Interactive conferences on topics germane to ambulatory care have been developed. Because the program has been well received by faculty and students, it will be expanded in the 1993–1994 academic year to include all 180 third-year students as they participate in the Medicine Clerkship.
