Abstract
Background: Medical student education is perceived as negatively impacting on clinical productivity and income. The current research aimed to test Worley and Kitto’s hypothetical model (2001) , which suggests for community-based longitudinal placements there is a ‘turning point’ after which time the student is beneficial to the practice. Our study triangulated quantitative income and expenditure data with preceptor perspectives derived from qualitative data. Summary of work: Preceptors provided gross practice income/expenditure. Preceptor interview data preand post- the year-long placement was analysed by two researchers who concurred on emergent themes. Summary of results: The percentage change on previous-year-average-daily-practice-income lent some support to Worley and Kitto’s model
