Preceptor Qualifications

Health Care Providers

  • The program utilizes only ABMS or AOA equivalent board-certified preceptors or NCCPA certified PAs to provide rotations specific to their certification. The certification must be current (not expired).
  • Preceptors are reviewed for their years of experience, experience with teaching students and ability to meet the rotation learning outcomes.


  • Providers approved as preceptors must hold a valid license that allows them to practice at the clinical site. The program will verify unrestricted licensure status at the time of initial preceptor evaluation via or respective state medical board for out-of-state providers, and again when the certification is due to expire (E*Value alert), to confirm license renewal as long as the provider remains an active preceptor for the Program.
