Wow... there's a business now for that. Yikes.
1). There are, in fact, multiple businesses for that. I just dealth with PreceptorLink and my experience was excellent, so I feel ok recommending it.
2). Why "yikes"? If schools do not want to do their jobs for arranging good preceptorships, then someone will use this market niche.
Just in case you do not know: there are similar businesses for PA and even MD students. If you happened to be in third-range med school but want a residency in a competitive narrow field specialty like ophthalmology, you might have to find your own clinical placement. Likewise, there are people who make money out of that - only it costs whole way more.
