In medicine there is an age old tradition of mentoring, precepting, apprenticing students in a clinical setting. Generally medical students spend their first 2 years in classroom learning the “basic sciences” required as the foundation for clinical knowledge. Then students begin their “clerkship years”. This period in medical school generally focuses on specialty driven clinical education. Each student will rotate in course such as: Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology, Geriatrics, and Family Medicine. At the University of Kansas School of Medicine we have introduce the option of fulfilling these Clerkship requirements in community and rural settings. The advantages from many aspects of this kind of clinical education model will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the recruitment and retention aspects of precepting students in your health care system.
