Preceptorships are designed to expose medical students to rural primary care practiced in a manner sensitive to the culture. Preceptors play an important and valued role in the overall educational process for students and help them become successful practitioners and colleagues. Preceptors act as mentors and role models helping students strengthen their skills in patient examinations and consultations, diagnostic and treatment assessments, medical recording and reporting, and other aspects of patient care.
