Testimonials

Loved every day on placement. My preceptor, as well as the other practice staff, involved me and allowed me to have some independence. Had a great time in Eidsvold.

The preceptor was fantastic, who in addition to the role helped with orientation to the area, social opportunities and recommendations.

This block has been phenomenal! I've loved my time in Eidsvold, especially getting to know members of the community.
