You can lead the future of primary care in Texas by serving as a GIMSPP preceptor (mentor). Physician preceptors deliver personalized instruction in a local, community-based setting to an early career medical student. This training helps students build a formative understanding of the practice of primary care and encourages them to pursue the practice post-graduation. Preceptors often report that GIMSPP not only rekindles their passion for medicine, but also allows them to give back to the medical profession.

As a valued GIMSPP volunteer preceptor, participants are eligible for one of the following incentives:
  • The American College of Physicians  “Teaching Medicine” – 6 Book Series
  • Free Registration to the Annual Meeting of the American College of Physicians – Texas Chapter (TXACP), a $205 value
Preceptor Eligibility Requirements
  • Internists must be board certified in internal medicine with a current Texas medical license.
  • Internists must practice at least 40% as a general internist apart from any other subspecialties.
  • Internists are expected to provide daily, personal instruction and supervision to a medical student.
  • Internists time commitment ranges from 2-4 weeks during the summer.
