Preceptor Program/Volunteer Medical Educators
The Preceptor Program is a partnership between TTUHSC School of Medicine and Community
Physicians [Clinical Faculty] throughout the region who volunteer their time to help education and train medical
students and resident physicians.
Our Preceptors provide unique opportunities by teaching and guiding the students'
medical and clinical experiences. They provide an environment where students achieve
the physician-patient relationship.
Our Preceptors get a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment in "giving back" as they
are a very important part of the career planning for future physicians.
