Primary Care Summer Preceptorships

Since 1996 the school has sponsored a primary care preceptorship program for students during the summer between their first and second years of classes. Students select a preceptor in internal medicine, pediatrics or family practice and spend up to eight weeks observing that physician’s clinical practice. A stipend is provided to the student. Although many of the preceptors are in St. Louis, others, particularly alumni, are located in cities throughout the country.
