Current and past LPP sites 

Preceptors come from variety of medical specialties (pediatrics, emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine and subspecialties, Ob\GYN, surgery). Any type of practice is considered as long as it allows for students to practice and observe basic skills of the history taking and physical exam, oral presentation, and learn in an interprofessional setting. Over the past five years we have worked with over 50 different host sites, allowing students to experience a broad range of clinical settings.
