A premier preceptor program for Family Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant students
The program aims to prepare students for the real world. We accomplish this goal by meeting the academic standards of the school and by providing students with a well-rounded experience that includes specialized online training, patient interaction, visibility to our EMR and the opportunity to work in a new and exciting model of health care.
Our preceptors have a passion for working with students. All of our providers have exceptional clinical skills and have worked hard to become experts in the operational skills required to run their own clinics. Given this experience, they provide an outstanding educational experience to their students.
The MinuteClinic preceptor program offers the most unique experience available because students do more than enhance their clinical skills. Students receive:
- Practical education including clinic operations, public relations, marketing, insurance procedures and use of evidence-based guidelines
- Exposure to the retail health care model of service delivery and an understanding of how the clinics fit into the future of health care
- An understanding of how a corporation relates to and supports the advancement of clinical practice
- Flexible schedules — clinics are open 7 days a week, allowing for a variety of clinical rotation sites and times
To participate, students must be enrolled in a family nurse practitioner or physician assistant program that has an executed MinuteClinic Preceptor Agreement, and must have completed at least one semester of a Master’s, post-Master’s or Doctoral program.
