Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine
Students from the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine are involved with family medicine preceptors in the outpatient setting during their Initial Clinical Experience (ICE) and the inpatient setting during their Advanced Clinical Experience (ACE). Drs. Iroku-Malize and Delman are the site directors for the ICE course located at the Southside Hospital site. The department of family medicine has an established Family Medicine Interest Group which is open to all students.
Our program also boasts an innovative family medicine clerkship for our external medical students. Each student is involved in a 4 week rotation which involves 3 weeks in the community setting with family medicine preceptors, and a 1 week rotation with the family medicine residents on the inpatient setting. Students participate in academic activities including grand rounds, team based learning sessions, journal club, small group discussions on careers in family medicine, end of rotation quizzes, simulation and procedure workshops. Interested students have the opportunity to participate with residents and faculty on quality improvement initiatives and research projects. Dr. Iroku –Malize is the Director of Medical Education for this clerkship with Dr. Michael Delman and Dr. Richard Bonanno as key faculty.Back to Top
