Be a Preceptor; Help Shape the Next Generation of Medicine(1)

The Texas Chapter of the American College of Physicians (TXACP) is seeking physician mentors for the summer 2016 General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program (GIMSPP).  

Preceptors open the doors to their practice to provide a medical student with personal instruction, training, and supervision for three to four weeks. Students get the opportunity to observe the daily routine of the physician, experiencing the variety the practice of internal medicine provides. For physicians, benefits of preceptorship include:  

  • The opportunity to give back, while rekindling your passion for medicine; 
  • The ability to help advance primary care in Texas; and 
  • An enriching experience for the student and preceptor. 

"GIMSPP isn't just good for the students, it's good for the preceptors," said Susan Andrew, MD, TXACP member and long-standing preceptor. 

Preceptors must be board certified in internal medicine, possess a current Texas medical license with no restrictions from the Texas Medical Board, and practice at least 40 percent to 50 percent general internal medicine apart from any other subspecialties.
