Physician Assistant Preceptors

Preceptors are key to providing hands-on learning experiences for our PA students over the course of their training. Our students complete clinical rotations in the following specialties:

  • Family medicine
  • Internal medicine
  • Emergency medicine
  • Surgery
  • Mental health
  • Pediatrics
  • Women’s health
  • Elective

Preceptors for our program must be a licensed physician (MD or DO), physician assistant, or nurse practitioner and have at least one year of experience in your current specialty.  If you are interested in becoming a preceptor for our program, please complete our new preceptor form and send to paexperientialteam@butler.edu.

For more information, please visit our PA Clinical Phase site as well as the Butler PA Program Preceptor Manual.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our preceptors for their continued support to our students and our programs. Without this level of support we would be unable to adequately prepare students for future practice opportunities. Please feel free to follow the experiential education office on Facebook and Twitter.
