FAM - 705 Family Medicine Leadership Program (FMLP)


The Family Medicine Leadership Program (FMLP) is a four-year, longitudinal curriculum designed to help meet the health needs of the population by training a select group of primary care focused medical students to become family medicine providers, mentors and leaders. The curriculum emphasizes patient-centered, community-based, interdisciplinary and experiential learning, with leadership development throughout the full four years of the student’s undergraduate medical education. Students are assigned to outpatient practices that will serve as their longitudinal “home base” for their entire medical school experience. They are supervised by family medicine faculty mentors and become an integral part of the community-based care team, gaining an appreciation for continuity of care by following their own panel of patients over time, observing the course of illness and recovery. The students participate in extracurricular activities and learning activities that emphasize the patient-centered medical home, promote community service and scholarly pursuits, requiring independent study and self-directed learning, allowing for significant personal and professional growth.
