UMKC’s preceptors are instrumental in enhancing our PA students’ clinical acumen, as well as their interprofessional development. Preceptors help ensure the next generation of health care providers are capable, well-trained, and compassionate team members.
Benefits available to our preceptors include (some benefits are dependent on level of service):
- Category 1 CME (for certified PAs only)
- Category 2 CME
- UMKC School of Medicine Courtesy Faculty Appointment (available for preceptors who who train four or more PA students in a year)
- EMR documentation by PA students may be cosigned by preceptor for medical charting/billing/coding
- Opportunity for mentoring and professional stewardship by training future PA colleagues
What our current preceptors are saying
Below are a few quotes from preceptors about the most significant benefit of being a UMKC PA program preceptor:
“(It provides) renewed energy and passion for my job.”
“Ability to share knowledge and pay it forward.”
“Discussing cases and reasoning behind management decisions. It helps me stay current.”
“Joy of learning more and getting to know the next generation of providers.”
