Preceptor Development

ACOM’s preceptors are trained to guide medical students in the development of the clinical skills and judgment necessary to become skilled physicians. ACOM supports the continued growth of our preceptors through a wide range of opportunities to build and expand upon existing teaching expertise. Preceptors may attend live trainings while networking with colleagues and engage in self-directed learning modules that provide flexibility to meet each preceptor’s busy schedule.

New Preceptor Orientation

Preceptors within the ACOM network participate in orientation activities providing access to resources and trainings necessary to thrive in clinical education. The strong foundation created through ACOM’s orientation allows preceptors to facilitate meaningful learning experiences for students.

Live Training Workshops

Preceptors are encouraged to attend ACOM’s interactive virtual and in-person workshops. During these sessions, preceptors can engage in active discussions, small group exercises and share best practices. CME credit is offered for all preceptor development events.

Online Training Modules

ACOM provides CME-eligible, online training modules for medical education to all preceptors through the Canvas Learning Management System. Completion of these self-paced modules and other development activities can be documented to support preceptor rank advancement.
