Patient Clinician Encounter Program Fall 2006
♦Precepting encounters occur during the preceptor’s regularly scheduled clinical time.
♦Usually at least 2 students will be assigned to a preceptor. Please talk with the other student assigned to your preceptor to decide which of you will go “first.” Preceptors may schedule you in alternate weeks, or they may want to schedule you to work with them in the same week, or even the same clinic session. Both students assigned to the preceptor will need to contact them as soon as possible.
♦We have assigned a few students for preceptor visits on the same afternoon as POM small group sessions. We did this only when we were unable to schedule you on other days. We expect you will be able to schedule your precepting session before or after your afternoon POM session. Please let us know if you run into any scheduling issues with your preceptor about this.
♦Some students expressed an interest in being placed with a radiologist or pathologist. We have tried to accommodate these requests, but were unable to do so in all instances.
♦Goals for PCEP this semester are dependent upon your clinic site. Learn from your preceptor, and learn about what your preceptor does. For those assigned to a patient-care clinician:
♦ For those assigned to a radiologist or pathologist:
