Wellstar offers qualified third and fourth year medical students the opportunity to pursue a core or elective clerkship in Family Medicine. The focus is on hands-on training in an exciting urban healthcare environment with diverse and often complex patient conditions.
The clerkship program is affiliated with the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, Mercer University School of Medicine, Morehouse School of Medicine, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and Ross University School of Medicine. Students apply through their home medical school and are required to submit an application through the Alliance for Clinical Experience Matching and Placement Program (ACEMAPP)
. We also accept applications through the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS)
for the fourth-year rotations.
Clerkship participants work out of the main Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center Campus in downtown Atlanta, as well as our AMC South Campus on Cleveland Avenue. Students provide their own housing during the clerkship, often staying with friends or relatives in the Atlanta area or in nearby housing. Participants give the program high marks and benefit greatly from the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to “real world”
