UNC Family Medicine Clerkship Requirements

The conditions on the UNC 96 have been assigned to specific clerkships to assure that all students learn about these core conditions. During the Family Medicine Clerkship, all students are required to have contributed to the care of at least one patient with the conditions (from the UNC96 list) listed below.

As noted above, patient encounters will be monitored by completion of the Asheville Patient Encounter Log (on Google). Monthly students should review the Patient Log with their clinical preceptor and should discuss ways of achieving the required patient contacts within the practice by the end of the clerkship. If towards the end of the year, there are still conditions which students has not encountered, the student should work through relevant cases in Family Medicine Case Files and mark off conditions in the Patient Log. Note that some conditions overlap. If a patient has Ischemic Heart Disease and Hyperlipidemia, students may check off both. It is expected that all students complete all items on the Family Medicine patient log by the end of the year. The items are listed below and are found within the Asheville Patient Encounter Log (on Google).
