My Preceptor wants to know what I will be expected to do at his site. What should I tell him ?
We have developed our curriculum in such a way as to allow the Intern to fully participate in the regular activities of the particular site that they are at. In short, the Intern should be doing what the preceptor is doing, albeit at a pre-entry level.
Some examples are using telehealth, packaging or delivering food, giving presentations and webinars for staff and/or patients, working with the chef to develop or revise menus, updating website pages and other educational materials, writing blogs for a website, performing screenings in person or online, attending Zoom meetings or rounds, developing or revising policies, analyzing quality improvement data, conducting research, counseling another student or family member, developing materials for an association, testing recipes, developing lesson plans, conducting virtual lessons to students in school, evaluating programs, presenting findings, and other similar activities.
