How long have you been a UTMB PA Preceptor? I started precepting students in 2007.
What is your favorite thing about being a PA Preceptor? I enjoy seeing how proficient a PA student can become towards the end of a rotation or block. It’s great to see their confidence grow in their skills.
What would you say to other clinicians thinking about becoming a preceptor? I remember the old saying from preceptors in PA school: "See one, do one, teach one." It’s our turn to teach the future generations of clinicians.
