Preceptor Orientation


Is this your first time as a preceptor for a UBC dietetic intern? Thank you for dedicating your time to training dietetic interns!  We hope you find it to be a rewarding experience. This page provides orientation resources for new preceptors, and experienced preceptors wanting a refresher.

The Preceptor Orientation Checklist can help you prepare for your intern’s placement.  Start with a self-guided orientation using the checklist. Additional tools to support you are posted in the “Preceptor Resources” section on the left side of this page.
