Are medical students influenced by preceptors in making career choices, and if so how? A systematic review
Increasingly medical students undertake clinical training in distributed learning environments. The driving factor for this is predominantly to address medical workforce shortages. In these environments students are often taught by private practitioners, residents, house staff and registrars, as well as faculty. The aim of this systematic review was to understand if and how medical students’ career choices are influenced by their interactions with preceptors.
