The UNC School of Medicine's Clinical Week pulls medical students out of the classroom and sends them to communities across North Carolina to gain medical knowledge and develop clinical skills through interaction with primary care physicians and their patients. Last week, the UNC SOM Facebook page captured the Clinical Week experiences of first-year medical students. Please take a moment to see where our students went and to read what they learned, as shared in their words. And if you haven't already done so, "Like" the UNC School of Medicine on Facebook.

UNC School of Medicine students have a special connection to the state of North Carolina because of the public service mission of the institution. While clinical week is a traditional part of medical education everywhere, it is particularly special at UNC, giving students an opportunity to interact with the communities they may serve after they complete their education. In some cases it even takes them to their home communities. Last month's clinical week for MS1s was captured via the UNC SOM Facebook page. Please take a moment to view this visual recap of where our students went and what they had to say. And if you haven't already done so, "Like" the UNC School of Medicine on Facebook.
