We are fortunate to employ experienced preceptors in multiple specialties who have a passion for teaching. While we do appreciate requests for specific preceptors, availability is based on preceptor schedules, clinic capacity, and our commitment to a one-student-at-a-time guideline. This ensures individual instruction and a comprehensive educational experience.
