(1.5 credit hours) COM 5172—Interdisciplinary Generalist Curriculum Preceptorship II The Interdisciplinary Generalist Curriculum (IGC) Preceptorship for first-year students is composed of the IGC Primary Care Physician Mentor Preceptorship and the Explore Selective. The premise of the IGC Program is that exposure to professional role models is a significant determinant of medical students’ career choices. In addition, an early clinical experience is an essential learning component for medical students to begin to correlate classroom knowledge with actual patient encounters. The IGC Preceptorship I and II courses expose first-year medical students to clinical settings by matching each student with a community-based physicianmentor for a primary care rotation. Based on selection preferences, students are also assigned to an explore selective in either an Osteopathic Principles and Practice (OPP) clinic on or off campus; a Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine in Community Service (COM2Serve) site; a clinical sub-specialty session from one of at least five disciplines; or a prerequisite training program that will enable students to provide special services, such as HIV testing or reproductive health counseling.
