Becoming a Preceptor
Our preceptors play an integral role in the student’s clinical experience. The preceptor guides and teaches the student in perfecting skills in history taking, physical examination, effective oral communication, developing diagnoses, assessment and plans. Schedules can be individually tailored for participation in more than one program. You may:
alternate mentoring PA students and M3 medical students throughout the year.
mentor a M1 or M2 student while mentoring a PA student or M3 medical student. The PA or M3 student would be reassigned on the afternoons the M1 or M2 is scheduled.
mentor a PA student with a M3 or M4 student to integrate a “team-approach” in your practice.
mentor for one program only.
