Medical Home Visit Program


The Medical Student Home Visit Program is an elective program designed to give pre-clinical students the opportunity to experience a medical home visit alongside a physician.

Students, in pairs of two, will accompany a physician to a home visit with a patient from the physician’s practice. The student goals for the visit are practicing interviewing skills, understanding cultural sensitivity, and appreciating team-based healthcare. The physician-student teams will go on at least two visits during one calendar year as well as participate in discussions regarding trending topics in healthcare including the potential value of physician home visits.
