Shaping the future of family medicine
Step out of the classroom and into the exam room
The Texas Family Medicine Preceptorship Program is designed to match first- or second-year students enrolled in a Texas medical school with an experienced and skilled family physician for a two- to four-week period to help them gain real-life experience in a community setting. By participating in our preceptorship program, students will have the unique opportunity to explore what it means to be a family physician.
