Overall, the Summer Externship Program was an exceptional experience that surpassed all of my expectations. I could not have asked for a better way to spend my summer. One of the great things about the clinical aspect in this externship was getting to work with attendings 1:1 for a whole week. By giving us a week to get involved with clinical work, it allowed our preceptors to understand where our skill level was at and where we could use the most improvement. It gave me the opportunity to grow every single week. By the end of the four weeks of clinical rotations, I was much more comfortable with my patient interview, physical exam, and basics of diagnosis. From doing joint injections and skin biopsies to watching new life come into the world via natural or Cesarian section, Family Physicians do it all. The clinical experience gave me the perspective of what it is like to be a Family Practice doctor, both at work and at home. In the end, those four weeks have solidified my interest in Family Medicine. Through my experience in the Academy and Foundation office, I learned how to be an advocate for my future specialty. The Academy and Foundation exist to serve Family Physicians and the fantastic specialty they have chosen. The Academy develops tools for physicians to help with their practice, determines important issues for physicians in our state, and advocates for us at the capitol. The Foundation serves as the philanthropic arm of the Academy and helps with recruitment of future Family Physicians and physician leaders. - Daniel Jurczyk, UW, 2015
