To the Editor: Attachments to general practices offer medical students exposure to patients and to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and palliation of the spectrum of illness in the community. However, medical schools face the challenge of retaining, recruiting, training and supporting teaching practices that can provide high-quality learning experiences for increasing numbers of medical students, and can keep student teaching manageable and rewarding for the general practitioners themselves.
