Why are preceptors important at Harding?

Preceptors are essential to our clinical phase to mentor and challenge students in real-world experiences needed as they prepare to enter the field. Precepting can be a mutually beneficial experience:

  • Influence the next generation of medical providers
  • Access program provided CME resources 
  • Maintain knowledge of up to date medical practice 
  • Maintain and potentially increase workplace efficiency
    • Students can initiate patient encounters independently - gathering a history, verifying past medical history or medications and performing a physical exam, allowing preceptors to complete charting or orders on previous patients.
    • Students can assist with communicating diagnostic test results to patients and developing patient education materials
