Are You Offering Your Preceptors the CME They Deserve?

June 14, 2016

In 2011, PAEA conducted a national survey of practicing PAs in which the ability to earn category CME 1 credits was ranked as the #1 incentive to begin or continue precepting PA students. In response, PAEA and AAPA have partnered to ensure PA programs have a mechanism to award Category 1 CME to their PA preceptors.

Since 2013, over 100 accredited PA programs have taken this opportunity to give preceptors the recognition they want and deserve. If you are not offering this form of preceptor recognition, please visit this website for guidelines and sample documents.
