Preceptor Handbook

Thank you for your interest in joining our team of clinical educators in Northern Ontario!

Clinical practice in Northern Ontario provides the opportunity for interesting and challenging clinical careers. Many clinicians in our region choose to share the knowledge and skills they have developed in their unique clinical practice by acting as preceptors for learners on clinical placement.  The role of preceptor is critical, not only in training the next generation of practitioners, but also in recruiting future colleagues and preceptors who are skilled and knowledgeable about the distinctive challenges and rewards of practice in the north. This handbook has been created for you as a valued preceptor for NOSM University Health Sciences learners on clinical placement in the fields of Audiology, Occupational Therapy,  Physiotherapy, and Speech-Language Pathology. The purpose of this guide is to provide information and resources that will help you navigate your way through the placement process.

Setting the stage for a successful clinical placement begins with careful planning and good communication following the placement confirmation.  NOSM University provides a range of resources to support you on this journey.   

Please reach out to the NOSM University Rehabilitation Sciences (RS) team anytime, we would love to hear from you!
