Grades in required or core clerkships are very important to family medicine residency programs.
In a NRMP survey of family medicine residency programs, 46% cited "grades in required clerkships" as a factor in selecting applicants to interview.
Our book, Success on the Wards, is a powerful resource to help you excel in core clerkships. It has also been widely used by international medical graduates seeking to perform at a high level during U.S. clinical rotations. Securing a family medicine rotation can be challenging for international medical graduates. We have created a database of clinical opportunities in family medicine to help direct your search (see below).
