Texas Chapter of the ACP Medical Students News

The General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program (GIMSPP) places students with internists across the state for three or four-week preceptorships during the student's summer break. Students from all nine of the Texas medical schools participate -- most are first and second year students, however, third and fourth year students are also eligible.

The GIMSPP 2014 Student Application is now closed.  Once staff begins working on your match, you will be contacted before any further action is taken.

There will not be a stipend issued for students that complete a preceptorship for the summer of 2014. The TXACP Foundation is working to restore funding and stipends inthe future but presently, no stipends are offered for this program. If you have any questions about the program or your application, please contact Nicole Abbott at nicole.abbott@texmed.org or by phone at (512) 370-1528.
