The Senior Clinical Team Members (SCTMs) are primarily responsible for providing each patient’s medical care.
SCTMs are upperclass medical, PA or APRN students, who have completed at least 3 months of clinical rotation. SCTMs oversee and lead the patient clinical care. For each patient, the SCTM takes a complete history and conducts a physical exam, develops a treatment plan with an attending, and writes a note in the chart. Each SCTM sees 2-3 patients during the clinic day. Whenever possible, SCTMs see patients longitudinally, developing lasting provider-patient relationships. Another important component of the SCTM’s role is teaching and mentoring junior clinical students, introducing them to common complaints seen in a primary care setting.
SCTMs who have completed their OB/GYN rotation and are interested in women’s health are encouraged to participate in Women’s Health visits, providing gynecological care.
