Student Feedback

It's clear our students value the time spent with their preceptors! Here is a sampling of comments left on student evaluations.

"The preceptor encouraged me to think like a clinician and helped me become more confident with physical exam skills. His high patient volume allowed me to see a wide variety of complaints and even assist in a few in-office procedures, which I really enjoyed... this was one of the best rotations I've had thus far."
"One of the best preceptors I've had so far. He is an amazing teacher and really helped me to succeed. I will be a better provider because of all he taught me."
"[My preceptor] has been a great teacher throughout the year at [my clinical site]. What I have valued most about him is his knowledge about the subject matter. He answers all my questions thoroughly and phrases his answer in terms I can comprehend. I've become more proficient in my clinical skills because of this. [He] has offered up himself to be practiced on which has supported my learning substantially. Practicing goni, PIVM, and other clinical skills on [him] has allowed me to make the mistakes I needed to make in order to become more proficient in a low stakes environment. It is what makes him stand out from other CIs and has been greatly appreciated."
"My clinical faculty did a great job in using our knowledge base by choosing patients that had some of the same conditions we were learning about. This allowed us to practice our skills in class as well as use our area of knowledge that was most fresh in our mind."
"She was very patient with me and helped me with my weaknesses. Documentation was a huge weakness, I told her that on the first day—she took it into consideration, so we had myself documenting day 2 of my clinical so that I could work on making it better. She provided help/advice or anything else that I needed whenever I needed it. She overall was GREAT. "
