2017 Outstanding Preceptor Award presenters and recipients

2017 Outstanding Preceptor Recognition

“Fearless,” “a rock star,” and “a force to be reckoned with”

This is how interns described their preceptors who were awarded Outstanding Preceptor Recognition.

During national public health week, the UT Department of Public Health awarded three public health leaders recognition as Outstanding Preceptors for having demonstrated continued, high quality mentoring of MPH interns. The award began in 2004. To date 34 preceptors have been recognized. Of those, approximately 1/3 are alumni, a testament to the volunteer tradition that our graduates carry forward.  The three preceptors recognized in 2017 are listed below.
