Med-235 Tribal Ambulatory Healthcare Experience
Over the course of the quarter, students will shadow physicians at the IHC in Pauma Valley. The clinic provides a full spectrum of on-site and outreach services and programs to the North San Diego County reservations of Inaja-Cosmit, La Jolla, Los Coyotes, Mesa Grande, Pala, Pauma, Rincon, San Pasqual, and Santa Ysabel, where you will be able to further your understanding of Native American health and learn key components of the physical exam, H&P, and chronic disease management. The Indian Health Council has a number of additional requirements (e.g. background checks, drug testing, etc) that will need to be completed prior to participating.
