Abbie Schuster, a Great Bend native and a fourth-year medical student at the KU School of Medicine–Wichita, is receiving hands-on, clinical training in Great Bend from Teri Turkle-Huslig, M.D. at Central Kansas Family Practice.
Schuster will be in Great Bend through Dec. 15.
The KU School of Medicine–Wichita Rural Preceptorship program exposes medical students to community-based medicine in rural Kansas communities, which is the most common kind of care across the state.
The program is in support of the school’s mission to educate doctors for Kansas and allows medical students an opportunity to participate in clinical medicine, procedures, hospital care, community health, and the business of medicine in a rural setting.
