Texas Statewide Preceptorship/Research Programs

General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program

The General Internal Medicine Statewide Preceptorship Program (GIMSPP) is a mentorship program offered by the Texas Academy of Internal Medicine and the Texas chapter of the ACP. The Preceptorship Program gives medical students an opportunity to spend time with an internist practicing in a community based hospital or clinic. Students observe the daily routine of the internist, experiencing the variety that the practice of internal medicine provides. GIMSPP is funded by a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
