UC does provide help, but like most schools, is not going to do the work of finding preceptors, per se. For example, I got a list of over 50 MDs and NPs who served as preceptors for former students in my state. From there, I contacted people.
I am in Adult-Gero Primary. I am in my 3rd semester, and all classes are a mix of family and adult (and acute/some anesthesia), with some projects or assignments unique to one's track. As I understand, Family is more challenging related to finding preceptors, as pediatric and women's health-focused clinics must be found.
If I were you, I would organize a plan to begin looking for preceptors now. For example, I had my first 2 clinical semesters set up prior to school, as I got to know NPs from work and personal experiences. It is an important skill for the future to be able to professionally network, anyway. Join NP organizations in your area, etc.
