  7. Just how do we find preceptors?
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not arguing with you guys. I completely agree that students finding their own preceptors is a huge problem. However, it's not simply a matter of local vs. distance programs....

  9. Just how do we find preceptors?
    That's a very idealistic view. Also, the largest University in my state requires students to find their own preceptors. I've heard this is not at all unique, and is in fact quite common. I agree,...
