Preceptorships are two (2), three (3), or four (4) consecutive week rotations with the same preceptor. If you do not have consecutive weeks available, please indicate this in the "Special Request" section of the application. We will reach out to discuss your specific situation.
The specific schedule you will be working vary by preceptor. You will be working with and following a physician’s schedule. Some of GIMSPP preceptors may be a private practice who work 8:00am-5:00pm with every other Friday off. Others may be hospitalists with a 3-days-on-3-days-off schedule. Still others may be 14-hour days - half spent at a private practice, half at a hospital. GIMSPP designed for you to get a very real feel for what practicing Internal Medicine is like. And the truth is, it varies!
If you are trying to participate in GIMSPP and need your schedule worked around a job or other events, you may find it challenging to meet the hours required by your preceptor. If you have limitations on your schedule, please let us know on your application so we can do our best to accommodate your needs.
