GIMSPP stands for General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program. By working with an assigned physician, students will gain insight into the rewards of a practice in internal medicine, and observe how a clinician functions as a member of his or her medical and non-medical community. GIMSPP staff work to place medical students with internists across the state for two, three, or four week preceptorships during the student's summer break. During this preceptorship students will develop skills in history taking, physical examination, early diagnosis, and treatment plan formulation, among others. First- and second-year students enrolled in a Texas medical school are eligible to participate, if they have not participated in GIMSPP previously. GIMSPP provides a living stipend to help offset living expenses.
