CiM - Careers in Medicine Elective

MED 296E, Winter 20114

Dear Preceptor:

Thank you for agreeing to participate in our Preceptorship Program. As you know, there are many administrative procedures which must be completed in order for our students to participate in patient care activities. Please note the following:

  • All medical students are insured against malpractice by the University of California. Coverage is $1 million per person, per occurrence.
  • All medical students complete a criminal background check prior to being admitted to medical school, and have been fingerprinted (and cleared) through the Veteran’s Administration Hospital by January of their first year in medical school.
  • All medical students have provided us with proof of required immunizations, including annual TB clearance.

In addition, we know that many health care organizations require that medical students complete compliance packets prior to shadowing their preceptors. We have the contact information for most of these organizations and can ensure that your organization's compliance officer is apprised of the student's presence. We will also ensure that students complete these packets in a timely manner.

Once again, thank you for your participation. We appreciate your willingness to contribute your time to enhancing the educational experience for our students.
