    Tags: preceptorship, family medicine, bias, corkran

    You never know how the choices you make today might dramatically affect your future, how a few seemingly insignificant weeks can alter the trajectory of your life. That’s the hope and the promise of the Texas Statewide Primary Care Preceptorship Program.

    As Travis Bias, D.O., told TAFP’s Kate Alfano for an article in the fall 2010 edition of Texas Family Physician, he entered medical school expecting to become an orthopedic surgeon. He worried about the debt he would accrue during his medical education and believed he’d have to pursue a more lucrative specialty to pay it off more quickly.

    Then he completed his family medicine preceptorship as a requirement of his medical school curriculum, and now, Bias is a family doctor.
