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.)
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.
