Each year, more than 70 Dominican students participate in health science preceptorships. A health science preceptorship integrates academic coursework with real-life applications, highlights potential career paths, helps develop important professional contacts, and bolsters graduate school applications. Post Baccalaureate Pre Medical students may apply for a 2-credit hour preceptorship and will be placed based upon availability. You will forfeit your preceptorship if:

  • you do not fill out paperwork by the expected deadlines
  • you display any unprofessional conduct (e.g., missed meetings, issues with staff)
