Preceptors

Preceptors

A preceptor is a practicing public health professional who plays a vital role in the education and training of our public health students.  The preceptors facilitate a learning experience in which students may gain more skills and take greater responsibility for their own learning.

Preceptors should have an advanced degree in public health, be at a mid-management level or higher and have at least three years of experience in the field (post-master's degree).  Individuals who have a related degree and/or the equivalent in terms of public health experience may also be appropriate preceptors.  They are the primary supervisors and mentors of the students at the field experience/applied practice experience site.
