My goal as the Preceptor Coordinator for this area is to help you gain fulfilling educational experiences by providing community-based learning opportunities and clinical experiences within the urban underserved communities of metro Atlanta. Community-based training will give you a unique opportunity to experience health care in a real world setting and interact one-on-one with your community based preceptor and patients. Current research has shown that health care professions students who have participated in these experiences have a better understanding of the complex needs of underserved communities.
