Preceptors & Clinical Instructors

Southern Vermont AHEC seeks to support Community Faculty and Clinical Instructors through a variety of ways. The following is a list of specific areas in which Southern Vermont AHEC facilitates or directly assists preceptors and clinical instructors:

  • Continuing Education & Training Facilitates or links to continuing education opportunities, training, community health improvement activities, and community faculty development programs. Preceptors may receive certificates from the UVM Office of Primary Care towards Larner College of Medicine or other CME courses.
  • Educational Resources – Provision of medical reference and research materials.

As Southern Vermont AHEC develops relationships with preceptors and instructors in the region, other areas of support may be explored.

If you are currently a Larner College of Medicine Faculty Preceptor and have access to the UVM network, see the Dana Medical Library Information for College of Medicine Faculty Preceptors.  You can access over 5,000 health science journals (most available electronically), and authoritative and evidence-based databases and clinical resources including UP TO DATE, and DynaMed, PubMed & OVID.

If you are a community health care professional, you can use the UVM Dana Medical Library resources through Southern Vermont AHECs HEALTH RESEARCH ASSOCIATE membership at no charge. For more information, see the Dana Medical Library Information for Southern Vermont AHEC Area Provider fact sheet (PDF).

Other areas of support:

  • Loan Repayment Administers the Vermont Educational loan repayment program for healthcare professionals.
  • Logistical Support of Medical Students – Facilitates the housing and community connections for medical, nursing and social work students on clinical rotations.
  • Distance Education – Facilitates distance learning and networking opportunities through webinars and online technology
