Since 1973, the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine (CCOM) has been providing visiting professor activities to the University of Iowa Affiliated Family Medicine Residency Programs across the state. The Visiting Professor Program is an important source of educational support in these community-based settings where family medicine residents, medical students, physician assistant students, and clinical pharmacy students’ train.
As visiting professors, College of Medicine faculty present teaching conferences and participate in other educational activities at these Iowa community-based residency programs. Faculty visits serve two purposes. They contribute to the basic training of family medicine residents and health professions students, and they provide a source of education for the faculty and other physicians in the geographic regions where the residency programs are located.
