Preceptors & Clinical Instructors

Preceptors are crucial not only for the development of the next generation of competent, caring family practitioners, but they are an essential component of a practice’s recruitment program.

In a rural state like Vermont, many clinics are located in underserved locations that need primary care providers.

Medical trainees exposed to underserved populations are more likely to practice in similar settings upon graduation.

Southern Vermont AHEC supports Community Faculty and Clinical Instructors in its area who precept the Larner College of Medicine (LCOM) medical students through access to the LCOM Community Preceptor Recognition Program. Preceptors are awarded vouchers to be used toward UVM or non-UVM continuing medical education (CME) courses.

Physicians are also eligible to claim AMA category II credits of AAFP “elective” CME credits (up to 20 hours per year) for their teaching of medical students.

Thank you to our Community Preceptors who generously donate their time and experience to teach medical and nursing students!
