Maybe this is contributing to the problem. As long as students are willing to pay tuition and turn around and grovel for preceptors, these schools will be perfectly pleased to let them continue to do so. Maybe if we stopped enrolling in the programs that don't provide preceptors, these educators would do something about it..
Great post. I agree completely. As long as student continue to willingly to schools who don't provide the education the students are paying for ... the schools will continue to be happy to collect the money.
And I'll add ... As long as potential preceptors are willing to provide their teaching services for free, the schools will be happy to take advantage of their generosity and ask them to precept their students for free, too.
