Mentor and Train the Next Generation of Physician Assistants
Clinical preceptors are licensed health professionals who act as mentors and role models to Franklin Pierce University’s physician assistant (PA) students. Clinical preceptors are essential in guiding our PA student experiences through numerous aspects of patient care; including history taking, physical examination, assessment, diagnostic testing, patient documentation and presentation.
Franklin Pierce PA students will have completed 13 months of didactic education prior beginning clinical rotations. Our PA students are eager to learn through experience in a clinical setting.
Sharing your clinical knowledge and skills with the next generation PAs is both professionally and personally rewarding. Students are enthusiastic learners whose interactions with you and your patients often bring a new dimension and energy to your practice. Preceptors are given a stipend for teaching our students. In addition, each preceptor receives a certificate for Category II CME credit based on time spent with the student. PAs who precept our students may be eligible for Category I CME credit. An opportunity for a faculty appointment is also available.
MDs, DOs, PAs, NPs, midwives are able to be preceptors. Interested preceptors candidates should hold board or national certification in your specialty area and have approval by our program prior to student rotation assignment.
