General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program

"For the students, I hope they gain confidence in being able to interact with patients, families and staff. I hope that they feel comfortable with getting a history, doing a physical exam, coming up with a differential diagnosis and plan and then presenting the patient’s case. I hope the students will learn how to research medical problems and treatments. Since it might not be another year before further clinical experiences, I hope the students have had a sufficient clinical exposure "to keep them going."

- Dr. Susan Andrew, MD - GIMSPP Emerald Award Winner for 20 Years of Dedicated Volunteer Service to GIMSPP Students

Since 1992, the General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program (GIMSPP) has placed first and second year medical students with internists across the state for two-week, three-week, or four-week preceptorships during the student's summer break. Preceptorships are available on a first come, first served basis. Stipends are available to cover cost of living for our students.  See our preceptorship overview page for testimonials from long-time preceptors and more information.  Urban and Rural/Underserved preceptorships are available and vary each year based on availability.

Thank you for your interest! The 2018 Application is now closed. Students enrolled in a Texas Medical School may apply to the program in 2019. Additionally, you may consider applying to the other Primary Care Statewide Preceptorship Programs.
