The MMA Preceptor Initiative was started to help physicians by providing tools and resources to improve the training and support for clinical preceptors.
These resources were developed via a partnership between the MMA and University of Minnesota Medical School known as the MMA Preceptor Initiative.
Thank you to the MMA Preceptor Initiative Advisory Group, the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Medical Educator Development and Scholarship Program (MEDS), Darin Brink, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health, and Jon Hallberg, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.
