UNMC In Need of Preceptors like You!

The University of Nebraska College of Medicine desperately needs preceptors in order to maintain their Longitudinal Clinical Experience (LCE) Program. UNMC is seeking Omaha and surrounding area physicians to consider serving as Longitudinal Clinical Experience (LCE) Preceptors.

Description of Program

The LCE Program offers M1 and M2 medical students an opportunity to spend time with metropolitan area physicians. The purpose is to allow students to practice their history and physical examination skills they learn elsewhere in the curriculum and give them an opportunity to gain early clinical experience.

Timeframe

The program begins in September and ends in April. UNMC students are required to spend five half-days (afternoons only) per semester (ten per year) shadowing and working with their preceptor.

Advantages for Physicians

• Access to the College of Medicine web site and the multitude of library resources
• CME credit for teaching - The American Academy of Family Physicians permits reporting CME hours for teaching of medical students, for “a maximum of 20 prescribed hours each year”
