As the first day of my summer preceptorship approached, I was filled with excitement as well as uneasiness. The possibility of seeing patients who were living examples of the detailed descriptions of illnesses in my textbooks fueled my interest to work in a clinic. On the other hand, horror stories of endless grilling and quizzing by preceptors made my stomach turn. I knew I was lucky, though. My preceptor had been my family physician since I was in kindergarten. This was the man who urged me, every time I visited, to come back to our rural town and take his place. I was excited about all he would teach me in the next 4 weeks. I was ready to impress him and wasn't going to let him down.
