Mentoring and Shadowing
What is the UWS Mentor Network?
The UWS Mentor Network is a program for students and alumni to receive support as they face various points and transitions in their education and professional careers. Incoming students of all programs are encouraged to sign-up as protégés. Current students are welcome to sign-up as protégés, ambassadors and mentors. Alumni can offer their expertise to current students, serve as ambassadors to prospective students, or get connected with alumni mentors of their own. Join the UWS Mentor Network today!
Shadowing provides current and prospective students a space for varied in-person clinical observation. This provides an excellent opportunity for students to observe different types of practitioners and practice models in action, and is usually of brief duration – a few hours to a few days.
Interested students, as well as alumni and friends open to students shadowing can email email@example.com. Students should include their preferred location and type of practice or clinical focus they’re interested in. Alumni and friends can include their clinic information and preferred contact method.
What is the preceptorship?
The preceptorship is an opportunity for 12th quarter interns in the Doctor of Chiropractic program to complete their education in the office of an experienced, licensed, approved chiropractor in private practice. Preceptorships are designed to expand the opportunities for individualized learning and professional growth by interns prior to graduation. The preceptor is the clinical teacher, role model and mentor contributing to the final component of the intern’s clinical education and training.
How do I participate as a UWS preceptor doctor?
Doctors interested in applying to be preceptors for the university should express their interest via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A representative from the preceptor program will respond to inquiries and will review the eligibility requirements, describe the application process, and prepare an application packet for completion. Application packets are sent directly to the preceptor doctor through email.
How often will I have an intern placed in my practice?
Hosting an intern in a preceptorship is not an automatic or continual process. Doctors approved as eligible preceptors are identified as such. Interns select their preceptorship location and are placed with the approved preceptor. Preceptorships are normally 10 weeks in length.
