Online Training for Faculty and Staff

Preceptors are experienced clinicians who share professional knowledge by teaching in the real world using a one-on-one tutorial relationship with the student. The teaching style is focused on interactive learning triads involving the student, clinician, and patient all within the clinical context. In your capacity as a preceptor you will serve in a number of overlapping roles, including coach, teacher, role model, facilitator, and evaluator.
