Happy applicants

Nicole and Sarah celebrate their successful match with our program.

Thank you for your interest in finding out more about Family Medicine teaching for medical students. Rochester’s students are taught by Family Medicine faculty within the formal required curriculum in years 1 and 2, and can participate in both inpatient and outpatient electives with us during years 3 and 4. We also welcome visiting students to plan electives in Rochester. Through these experiences, students benefit from teaching and mentorship from community and academic family physicians engaged in patient care, teaching and research. Our highly ranked residency and fellowship programs provide additional didactic teaching opportunities and insight into careers in Family Medicine. Please read on, explore the site, and contact us if you have questions or would like to know more.
