Online Reporting System

The Des Moines University CME office has implemented an online reporting system for physicians who precept osteopathic medical students. The online system makes it easier for physicians to report preceptor hours and earn CME credit, improves the accuracy of preceptor data, and enhances reporting capabilities.

The online system replaces the previous method of submitting preceptor hours through student evaluations. Hours can be quickly entered by the physician, clinical coordinator or nurse.

More information may be found on the Preceptor CME FAQ page.
