The course is a longitudinal clinical experience in primary care that will teach the skills of fostering behavior change in patients. Using a health coaching model, students will develop the skills needed to help patients change behavior and practice those skills on actual patients at community health centers. Students will partner with the patient’s primary care physician in the care of the patient. Each student will work with an individual patient and be responsible for developing and maintaining a coaching relationship over the course of a semester. The course will also include foundational components of the medical interview and physical examination.
