Become a Preceptor

The Department of Family and Community Medicine invites you to become a preceptor for our six-week family medicine clerkship that prepares students for a career in family medicine. 

The experience of working with you will likely be the highlight of the students' year.

Preceptors report being more enthused and renewed when they have medical students with them. We rely heavily on volunteer family physicians in private practice to give our students the depth of clinical experience they need to develop an understanding of family medicine and to hone their skills at diagnosis, physical examination and general patient care.

During the family medicine clerkship, students will follow your schedule except for Wednesdays when they are in class.

In recognition of physicians who agree to precept students, the American Academy of Family Physicians will award CME credits (hour for hour up to 20). For osteopathic physicians, the American Osteopathic Association also awards continuing medical education credits for physicians serving as preceptors.

We are now signing preceptors up for the following dates:

  • Rotation 803 - September 11 - October 20, 2017
  • Rotation 804 - November 6 - December 15, 2017
  • Rotation 805 - January 16 - February 23, 2018
  • Rotation 806 - March 12 - April 23, 2018

Become an Adjunct Faculty Member

We also offer the opportunity for you to become an adjunct assistant professor at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. As an adjunct assistant professor, you will receive a SLU email account and be able to access our Online Digital Library where you will find medical journals, clinical keys, database research guides, and much more.

To become an adjunct faculty member, take the following stops: 

Please note that once we have all of the above items, it will take a few weeks to process. You may precept a student while processing. Once processed, your paperwork will not have to be renewed again for three years.
