Some universities do have preceptorships available, and others might use our services to help you. We always suggest speaking with your school and using their resources to find a preceptor first.
Preceptors do receive an honorarium for completing clinical hours with students. Preceptors dedicate a lot of time scheduling, coordinating with the university, clinic, and the student. Preceptors fill out paperwork and make sure students meet all the requirements during their clinical rotations. Please always be courteous to preceptors, they do a lot for students.
Fill out the form on our website to get started under “students”. You will get an e-mailed list of preceptors to pick from and be assigned a placement coordinator right away. The placement coordinator will walk you through the process of getting a commitment from a preceptor for your clinical rotation. Please feel free to call or e-mail your coordinator, just be aware our placement coordinators are busy on the phones with other students, and they will be in contact as soon as they are free.
We have an ever-growing list of preceptors. You can get an updated list from the website or follow us on Facebook, we post new preceptors every day. Be aware that following and liking the Facebook page is especially important because these are preceptors that are willing to take students right away.
Once a preceptor agrees to help you, please make sure that all your paperwork for school is signed off by the preceptor. Preceptor Point can help aid in this if necessary. You may also need to do extra paperwork that the site might require (ex: background check, badges, HR paperwork). You will want to be professional when communicating with your preceptor and when attending your rotation. You will need to get your schedule agreed upon with the preceptor to ensure your clinical hours are met, remember to be flexible with what the preceptor is available for. Being respectful during this process will go a long way and set the tone for a great clinical rotation that enriches your education and possible future employment after graduation.
The cost for our matching service depends on the clinical rotation type, specialty needed, clinical hours required, location, etc. The easiest way to get the exact price is by contacting our placement coordinators to discuss your specific needs. Please make sure you fill out the form on our website and you will be placed with a coordinator.
