Preceptors must understand their responsibilities in order to perform their role well. The Role Delineation policy outlines the roles of all individuals involved in the internship.
The Dietetics Preceptor Training Program, available from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, is provided in 7 modules providing 8 CPEs at no charge. The topics of the modules are as follows: Module 1: Preparing for Your Role as Preceptor Module 2: Planning for Student Learning Module 3: Facilitating Student Learning Module 4: Assessing Student Learning Module 5: Communicating Effectively Module 6: Managing Your Time Module 7: Keeping Current
An awareness of the designated professional attributes interns use to evaluate their preceptors can be valuable feedback to a preceptor. The feedback is viewed periodically through the internship year by the regional director. The regional director will provide the site liaison with the intern’s feedback once the intern has graduated, unless an urgent issue is seen within the intern’s comments.

The internship program wants to recognize those preceptors and interns who go above and beyond in their roles. Criteria has been developed to help identify these outstanding individuals. Interns, site liaisons, and any preceptor in the program can nominate a preceptor. Full details of the program and the awards given are outlined in the Preceptor and Intern Recognition Policy.

Preceptors donate their valuable time to precept our future dietitians. The internship program appreciates all the time that preceptors devote to the interns. As a way of saying “thank you,” the internship can provide several CPEs to preceptors.
At the end of each internship year, site liaisons are sent the link to distribute to all site preceptors. The survey gathers the preceptor’s confirmation and self-reflection to receive up to 3 CPEs per year as a dietetic intern preceptor.
