Benefits of Clinical Precepting

The success of The George Washington University Physician Assistant (PA) Program is due to dedicated clinical preceptors who provide rewarding clinical experiences to students.  The George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences provide limited adjunct clinical faculty appointments to preceptors involved in the ongoing clinical education of PA students.  Preceptors who regularly provide clinical education are strongly encouraged to apply for such an appointment. Appointments are renewed on an annual basis.
