UNTHSC TCOM preceptors devote more than 420,000 hours annually to teaching third and fourth year medical students. Preceptors model patient centered care, practice management, skills and procedures with real patients and are dedicated to UNTHSC TCOM student success. Preceptors also participate in research mentoring, skills labs and student education symposiums throughout the academic year.
What is iPrecept?
iPrecept is a program developed to assist TCOM clinical education in providing direct support to current preceptors and enrollment information to potential preceptors to ensure innovative, high quality, sustainable educational experiences for TCOM students. Each of our preceptors has their own motivation and desire for teaching, from training the next generation of physicians— passing on sage knowledge—emphasizing student areas of interest like rural or global medicine— to recruiting future practice members, we strive to create an environment to support mutual initiatives.
Outstanding Preceptor Award
The Outstanding Preceptor Award was created to honor physicians who embody the attributes of an outstanding physician educator.
TCOM Students have the opportunity each semester to nominate a preceptor which will include remote sites and rural locations.
Award winners will be featured in UNTHSC newsroom stories, iPrecept newsletters and other publications.
