Why Become a Preceptor

UMKC’s preceptors are key to helping our students enhance their clinical acumen as well as growing their inter-professional development to ensure the next generation of providers are capable, well trained and compassionate team members.

Besides helping to train our future colleagues, our PA preceptors benefit by:

  • Courtesy academic appointments (Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor or Adjunct Clinical Instructor) available
  • Category 1 CME for PAs serving as preceptors (through AAPA)
  • Connects you to the next generation of clinicians
What our current preceptors have to say

Below are a few quotes from current preceptors when asked what the biggest benefit they find as a 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.”
