Preceptor Information

Welcome! Preceptors play a pivotal role in educating students in Le Moyne’s Physician Assistant Studies program. Not only do they guide and mentor students as they gain hands-on, real-world clinical experience, but they also model what it means to be a compassionate and caring health care provider. The preceptor imparts medical knowledge, helps the student refine clinical skills and serves as a clinical role model. We thank you for your interest in becoming a preceptor and hope that you will find the information and resources available here helpful.
