Clinical Preceptorship Experience
The PCA Program takes responsibility for approving and placing students in clinical settings. The goal is for students to train at primary care sites in their community. The student may be required to relocate or travel if an appropriate preceptor site cannot be located in their immediate area. These primary care practices include a mix of family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and women’s health sufficient to provide a broad base of experience in caring for all genders and ages, and across the life span. Continuity of care is emphasized. In keeping with our mission, students are required to have a portion of their primary care training occur at an officially-determined underserved site.
After completing several months in primary care settings, students are placed in rotations in emergency medicine, inpatient care, surgical settings, and long-term care facilities.
