Remember the clinical preceptors who took you on as a nervous new health care provider? They helped hone your skills, expand your knowledge and taught you patient care in real health care settings.
Now it’s your turn to be that “hero” to today’s providers-in-training: become a clinical preceptor. DMU seeks providers – D.O.s, M.D.s, D.P.M.s, and PA-Cs – who can take on current students to further their abilities and positively influence the way they will interact with patients the rest of their careers.
Benefits of becoming a DMU clinical preceptor include:
- increased enjoyment of clinical practice
- the rewards of giving back to the profession
- satisfaction in being a role model for students
- access to faculty development opportunities
- continued medical education for teaching
Already a preceptor? The University thanks you and encourages you to share your experiences with your colleagues who may be interested in getting involved, too.
