Clinical Preceptors

Clinical preceptors are licensed health professionals that provide clinical education to students in their specific area of expertise. Preceptors play an important and valued role in the overall educational process for students, and help them become successful practitioners and colleagues. Preceptors act as mentors and role models helping students strengthen their skills in patient examinations and consultations, diagnostic and treatment assessments, medical recording and reporting, and other aspects of patient care.

Benefits to our preceptors include:

  • Assistance to your office by working directly with academic institutions to manage student placement, scheduling, and credentialing

We are currently seeking individuals who are interested in becoming preceptors.  If you are interested in training the next generation of health professionals, please complete our Preceptor Information Survey and email to the Preceptor Coordinator.


The Georgia Statewide AHEC Network worked to create and pass legislation that creates tax deductions of up to $10,000 for uncompensated community-based faculty physicians who provide training to medical, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner students.

Effective April 2014, Georgia physicians who provide clinical training to health professions students for a minimum of three (to a maximum of 10) rotations, and who are not compensated through any other source, can claim a tax deduction of $1,000 for every 160 hours of training provided. Students must be enrolled in one of the state’s public or private medical/osteopathic, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner programs.
