As the clerkship director of Department of Family Medicine, I’m reaching out to you on behalf of the President and Dean of Morehouse School of Medicine, Dr. Valerie Montgomery Rice, to invite you to be part of the school’s strategic plan by becoming an adjunct faculty and serving as one of our community preceptors. This plan’s goal is to increase primary care physicians in Georgia due to the ongoing shortage over the next two years by expanding the student class to 100.
Our students spend 6 weeks on Family Medicine Rural Health Clerkship, of which 4 weeks are split in a 2 week block equally between a clinical environment in both local (urban) and rural settings. Our adjunct faculty members/community preceptors enjoy incentives that consist of free online CME courses via AAFP and STFM, access to MSM medical texts/literature, and most recently the Georgia preceptor tax incentive.
We look forward to discussing this opportunity with you further at your convenience. You can reach me on my cell phone at 404-421-8786. Thank you in advance for your anticipated support; we truly appreciate your time and willingness to teach.
