A.T. Still University Preceptors
ATSU medical students are supported by dedicated physician mentors who serve as preceptors, training and guiding this next generation of community healers.
Through a combination of clinic, office and hospital-based experiences, ATSU medical students realize the “essence” of becoming a physician in the 21st century. As such, they are heavily influenced by the passion, empathy and fortitude of their preceptors.
ATSU offers many opportunities and benefits to those who serve as preceptors. Additional information about ATSU preceptors is available through the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCOM) and School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (SOMA) websites.
