Rural Preceptorship

Course Director: Lynn Fisher, M.D.,
Course Coordinator: Erica Ortiz de Villate,

The Department of Family & Community Medicine strives to find a placement that meets the professional and personal goals of students who are seeking to complete their rural preceptorship in family medicine within established guidelines. To optimize your chances of being placed at a site that meets these goals, please contact the course coordinator as soon as you know when you're planning on completing the rural preceptorship. 

Many rural sites provide housing to students rotating in their community, while some students prefer to commute to the community they're rotating in. Arrangements for a preceptorship near Wichita or the student's hometown can be arranged on a limited basis according to preceptor availability. 

If you have a specific doctor in mind who is not included in the list of preceptors, please discuss with the course coordinator and considerations will be made. Availability of all preceptors is not guaranteed. Contact course coordinator with additional questions.
