Preceptor's Lounge

This page contains video training guides for Preceptors.

The Preceptor's Lounge is a quarterly webinar series specifically designed to meet the needs of PNWU clinical educators.  Developed with the idea of gathering together like-specialty preceptors, engaging them in conversations about important topics in medical education, and allowing opportunities for networking and collaboration, the Preceptor's Lounge is conducted over the lunch hour (depending on your time zone) and brings the conversation to you.

CME is offered for the sessions, and a broad range of topics is covered, such as the CMS rule change regarding medical student documentation, identifying students who are struggling on clinical rotations, and efficient and effective precepting strategies.

Webinar invitations will be sent to your email inbox as the event draws closer, and if you haven't received an invitation to the Preceptor's Lounge in the past, please contact to be included.  We hope to see you at the next session.
