Montana AHEC Preceptor Development

The Montana AHEC Program Office has had a long-standing preceptor development course dating back to 2012. Through CFPA, Montana AHEC is able to update, revise, and review the course so that it meets the needs of preceptors today. Revision and review are currently happening and when the course is ready, healthcare providers interested in taking it through CFPA will be able to do so by accessing it here.
