I hope this message finds you well. If I may introduce myself, my name is Dr. Dolapo Babalola. I’m the Family Medicine Clerkship Director for the Department of Family Medicine, Morehouse School of Medicine. In an effort to increase the number of primary care physicians in Georgia due to the ongoing shortage, Morehouse School of Medicine would be increasing its class size from 54 to 100 in the next two years. As a department, we daily welcome community preceptors to assist with the training of our future physicians, and I hereby reach out to inquire about a possible interest in becoming one of our community preceptors. I would like to inform you of some of the incentives we provide which include; becoming an adjunct faculty member, preceptor tax credit, free CME online courses, faculty/specialty consults, preceptor developments sessions, and medical texts/literature.
On this note, the Family Medicine Rural Health Clerkship is a 6-week program consisting of an average of 7-10 students per each 8 rotations per year. This clerkship comprises of the following:
- First week: Interactive Workshop Sessions and FmCases Quizzes
- Second to Fifth week: 2 weeks each of local and rural training in the Home, Clinic, Hospital, and Community.
- Sixth week: Exam week
Our students are assigned to community preceptors based on their requests during the two weeks local rotation. If interested, I would be happy to discuss further at your convenience. Thank you in advance for your anticipated support; we truly appreciate your time and willingness to teach.
