The Department of Family Medicine recognizes the importance of its volunteer faculty members as not only the backbone of its clinical rotations, but also for the expertise they provide across the many aspects of Family Medicine. It is our departmental mission to provide quality educational experience for medical students, residents, and faculty, and the participation of all our volunteer faculty is vital in accomplishing this goal. The single most significant influence on a student’s career choice is generally the opportunity to watch and work in a clinical setting with a committed and caring physician. The impact preceptors have on future generations of family physicians is unrivaled.
The Department of Family Medicine at UIC offers its volunteer faculty a non-salaried appointment in the College of Medicine. The program staff of the Department of Family Medicine is here to serve and assist you, and welcomes your questions and comments. Please contact the DFM Administrative Office at (312) 996-1103 or Aimee Serra for additional information regarding educational program opportunities or how to become a volunteer faculty. Thank you very much for your assistance in this effort and your interest in the Department of Family Medicine at UIC.
