Preceptorships are one-time learning opportunities for students in which they gain hands-on experience in a health care setting under the guidance of a physician experienced in their field. Preceptorships are available to all AED members. They are not point opportunities, but they are great resume builders and give you a head start on discovering which field of medicine you may be interested in pursuing.
If you are interested in participating, please contact with your name, classification (freshmen, sophomore,...) and the names of the top 3 physicians you are interested in shadowing.
