Course Description

The Fellowship in Family Medicine is an 11 months online course followed by a 4 weeks clinical rotation in family medicine in the United States and is designed by eminent faculties in the field of family medicine. Family physicians are in charge of the patient as a whole and ensure comprehensive patient care. They understand the patient in the context of both the family and community. The family physician coordinates the treatments given by different specialists and can provide a ‘single window clearance’ for all healthcare needs of an individual, thereby improving trust in the doctor.

The Fellowship in Family Medicine is accredited by the Academy of Family Physicians of India (AFPI). All successful students will be awarded a lifetime membership of AFPI, granting them access to the AFPI network and their knowledge base.

Learning complex medical concepts in the traditional didactic textbook and lecture format can be alienating for students. It prevents the opportunity to apply this knowledge clinically. Fellowship in Family Medicine incorporates a Case-Based Learning Approach within the Medvarsity Learning Framework to address this gap in medical education. Additionally, we’ve partnered with McGraw Hill to ensure that the students are exposed to relevant and credible content with the latest advances in the course specialty through a variety of case studies, books, videos, and other learning materials.

The 4-week rotation in the US familiarizes an International Medical Graduate (Indian Medical Students/ Doctors) to the practice of medicine in an American clinical setting, and provides international students an introduction to American Medicine as they will experience it in a hospital-based residency program.

This program benefits medical students/doctors applying to residency programs in the United States, providing excellent clinical experience and an overview of the US healthcare system. Accepted students are encouraged to explore their areas of interest in ongoing research and initiatives through recent publications or specific projects. Both the doctor and the student collaborate to pursue suitable research projects tailored especially to individual interests during the program.

At the end of each rotation, the supervising physician will provide you with feedback based on a standardized American Medical Association (AMA) clinical evaluation format. A complimentary review and critique of your resume and personal statement, including tips and suggestions for improvements,will be provided. Based on the performance your preceptor will write you a letter to support your goal of achieving a residency.

Eligibility: MBBS, MD/MS/DNB
