The Department
Founded in 1970, the Department of Family Medicine and Population Health at VCU has a long and proud history of training medical students and resident physicians. Our Department houses all of our family medicine medical student education programs, including a highly rated clerkship and two longitudinal, four-year track programs: The Inner City International Rural Program I2CRP is a 4-year longitudinal program for medical students who are invested in serving medically underserved populations. The mission of the program is to increase the number of students who choose career paths in primary care and who practice in underserved settings. The program enrolls up to 24 students per cohort or approximately 96 students during the M1 - M4 years. The preclinical curriculum includes didactics, journal clubs, grand rounds presentations, and service roles in underserved settings. The clinical curriculum includes second-year preceptorships in urban and rural underserved settings and clerkship rotations in urban, rural, and international underserved settings in Family Medicine, general Pediatrics, Ambulatory Medicine, and general Surgery. Students also complete a scholarly capstone project that is relevant to medically underserved communities.

The Family Medicine Scholars Training and Admission Track (fmSTAT) is a unique program designed to identify and select individuals who come to medical school intending to be family physicians. The four-year curricular track provides participants with tailored experiences that nurture, develop, and support this select group of medical students toward their family medicine career goal. It includes a community experience with planned and organic interactions across academic years with like-minded and committed peers, 1:1 family physician mentor throughout the four-year experience, Core family medicine content through semi-annual retreat and seminar sessions, Optional paid summer research experience between first and second year, Professional development (support to participate in state and national conferences, letters of recommendation for opportunities of interest, networking with preceptors, researchers, alumni, and other professionals, etc.).
