I wish I could help as well, but I'm just starting out myself a couple states away. During the last semester of school, I remember I had to look for a preceptor myself in a different city where I moved to. The hospital systems were usually a hot mess when I tried to get hours (and the hours in a specialty I wanted). I really wanted to work outpatient anyways. So, I eventually search the area for clinics that had openings for NP/PA/MD/DO jobs and asked the HR dept. if they would be willing to take on a student. Fortunately, I did get a reply from a clinic and was very happy with the experience. They also had a part time position open when I graduated, but I needed full time for loan repayment purposes... Good luck with the search!
