The Texas Chapter of the American College of Physicians (TXACP) is accepting applications from Texas medical students and physicians for the summer 2016 General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program (GIMSPP).
Since 1992, GIMSPP has placed first- and second-year medical students with internists across the state for two- to four-week preceptorships during summer break. Students get the opportunity to observe the daily routine of their preceptor, experiencing the variety of an internal medicine practice. Preceptors also share their expertise and knowledge, while helping shape the next generation of medicine.
Texas physicians helped lead the fight to restore funding for the GIMSPP during the 2015 legislative session.
Administered by the nonprofit TXACP, GIMSPP's renewed financial support for 2016 and beyond allows for stipends for participating students in rural and urban practice areas. Student preceptorships are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and students are encouraged to apply early. Only students currently enrolled in a Texas medical school are eligible to participate.
For more information on the program or to download the application for participation, visit the TXACP website.
