Information for Preceptors

Preceptors are an important part of medical education, guiding our students on-site at the hospitals, while on rotation. As a preceptor, you will receive credentialing and/or a faculty appointment and have access to the Touro Online Library Open Athens database. (Online library access for clinical preceptors is contingent upon successful completion of the credentialing process.)

Student Evaluations

At the end of each clinical rotation, the Department of Clinical Education requires a student evaluation be completed by the preceptor. This evaluation is completed online through New Innovations (see the Student Evaluation Manual for instructions). Your feedback and praise help to develop our future physicians.

The COMAT Clinical Subject exams are given during 3rd year rotations on the last business day of the month unless the students are otherwise notified. The official schedule will be posted on New Innovations. Students will not be expected to be at their clinical sites on the days of COMAT exams.

Documents You'll Need

Interested in Becoming a Preceptor?

First and foremost, you will need a commitment to our students and their medical education. As well as a completed application with the following required documents: 

  • Your Most Recent Curriculum Vitae

  • Current Malpractice Certificates of Coverage
  • Current State Medical License Registration

You will have an opportunity to upload and attach your file(s) as part of the application, please ensure you are able to locate the documents above on your computer.


Please don't hesitate to call, email or contact us in anyway.

In addition, if you have any concerns that a student is experiencing anxiety or stress and needs additional emotional support, we urge you to contact us. The overall well being of all our students as they continue their clinical education is very important.
