The Departments of Family Medicine and Psychiatry offer a one-month elective in combined care to fourth year medical students at the University of Iowa or qualified visiting medical students. Students work primarily with combined faculty and residents in the Family Medicine Clinic and Family Medicine Psychiatry, our primary care mental health clinic. Students interested in a particular area of combined care should communicate their interest(s) when applying for the elective so the appropriate arrangements can be made with specific faculty or clinics. Alison Lynch, MD, is the rotation director.
Medical students interested in family medicine and/or psychiatry may also consider participating in categorical electives offered by each department. For more information on medical student education in each department, please visit:
