Abstract

The preceptorship in family practice fulfills two major objectives: the preceptorship provides a positive learning experience and role model for the teaching of family practice, and preceptorships positively influence students to pursue training in primary care residencies. Other authors have found the preceptorship to be a positive influence on selection of family practice as a career choice. The data serve to support the contention that the preceptorship is highly regarded by undergraduate students at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and that the experience has been a positive force in the selection of primary care residency training. The preceptorship is already an integral part of the undergraduate training program at many institutions. This study and others indicate that this type of experience should be considered by all who teach family practice to students.
