A Directory of Preceptorship Programs in the Health Professions.
The directory lists the types of preceptorship experiences (courses of study in which students receive part of their training in a health care setting outside the direct confines of the educational institution and under the supervision of a practicing professional who serves as a preceptor) available at health professional schools and also the variety of sites being used for these experiences (also known as clerkships, clinical electives, or field placements). The directory is divided into two main sections, programs open to students from other institutions (108) and programs limited to those enrolled at the sponsoring college or university (135), both listed alphabetically by State. Data for the directory have been gathered from schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing (baccalaureate programs only), optometry, osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, podiatry, and public health. Included for each listing are: a brief description of the experience (rural, inner city, solo practitioner, group practice, neighborhood health center, and others), a contact for information, name of the sponsoring school or organization, location of sites, length of assignment, availability of financial assistance, and indentification of students to whom the program is open. A chart and map summarize the listings. Appended are names of schools interested in initiating cooperative programs with other institutions. (Author/MS)
