The McGill Longitudinal Family Medicine Experience

... because medicine starts with the patient.

Part of the new McGill MDCM Undergraduate curriculum, the Longitudinal Family Medicine Experience (LFME) is an innovative new course for first year medical students.

The purposes of this course are:

  • to provide students with early exposure to primary care;

  • to provide an opportunity for clinical correlation with themes introduced in the classroom; and

  • to provide an opportunity for students to practise history-taking and physical examination skills in a clinical setting.
