Student Externship Opportunities

6/18/2018
Welcome to the 2018 NYSAFP Student Externship application cycle! This program is an excellent opportunity to explore your interest in family medicine. Our goals for the program are as follows: Students who participate in the clinical arm will have the opportunity to improve skills in obtaining history and performing a physical exam. They will also develop an understanding of the scope of medical issues that family physicians encounter in the pediatric and adult populations. Students who participate in the research arm will develop, explore, and implement a research project that involves Family Medicine. With the guidance of their mentor they will develop an understanding of the possible advantages and limitations to particular study designs, establish a valid methodology, and being to implement and hopefully complete a project by the end of the externship.  Students may participate in a combined  clinical and research opportunity for a minumum for 4-weeks.
