I'm running into so much frustration trying to find a preceptor the biggest hurdle has been trying to get past the clinical practice managers and front desk people.
Our school told us 'the clinical practice managers will rarely get back to you so go directly to the site and give your resume directly to the provider' so I've gone to at least 10 sites attempting that and have been met with so much hubris from the front desk people.
I'll politely introduce myself and explain that I"m a student, etc., my school instructed us to have these forms handed directly to the provider
And they'll say something like "oh no this has to go to the clinical practice manager" and I'll be like "no I've already reached out to them and not heard back please just hand this to the provider" and they'll say they can't.
As far as I"m concerned that's basically mail, you don't screen their mail so why are you screening a document that I"m just asking you to hand to them, let the provider do the screening.
So frustrated, still no preceptor, not even sure half of them got the resumes I dropped off.
