Clinical preceptors impact the world, change lives. Being a preceptor is more than clinical training. As a mentor and evaluator, you help shape the future generation of health care professionals by providing personal and professional guidance and direction. You help future physicians define character and culture.
These stories from preceptors, faculty and students, share a common theme: the focus on inclusive teamwork to assure students are prepared to provide expert, inclusive, value-based care, a nurturing and supportive environment, and developing professional relationships between preceptor and student that last a lifetime.
