3. On-Campus Opportunities

The Upstate Norton College of Medicine is looking for Alumni who are interested in teaching medical students. Experienced clinicians are especially welcome. There are a number of different opportunities with varying time commitments. Most run periodically during the academic year which begins in August. Here are a few examples:

  • Practice of Medicine (POM) Mentor: Guide small groups of pre-clinical students through history and physical skills.
  • Foundations of Reasoning in Medicine (FRM) Mentor: Lead a group of 10 pre-clinical students through tabletop discussions.
  • Longitudinal Clinical Preceptorship (LCP) Mentor: Host a medical student in a continuity clinic one afternoon every other week. Expose students to real world clinical practice and issues.

*There may be other opportunities that become available, in which case Alumni who have expressed interest will be contacted on an as-needed basis.
