- Each student will be assigned to an ambulatory clinic and a physician preceptor in the fall of their first year.
- Students will work with their preceptor two half-days each month from October of their first year until October of their second year.
- Students attend CCE sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. The schedule is mutually agreed upon between preceptor and student. Students will assume an increasing amount of participation in patient care as the experience progresses.
- Throughout CCE, students will be assigned an ILM — an associated quiz or short assignment — which delivers relevant information related to ambulatory care. At the end of the CCE course, students will participate in an interprofessional "Summit," as well as a session where they present a patient case — of a patient they cared for in CCE — to a small group of peers and physician facilitator.
