Continuity Clinic Preceptor Opportunity


The University of Florida Pediatric Residency Program is recruiting new Primary Care Pediatricians to be Continuity Clinic Preceptors.



A unique feature of the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville (UFCOM-J) Pediatric Residency Program is the pairing of each resident with one preceptor in a primary care practice for all three years.  Practice sites include independent offices, solo and group practices, health department clinics, and University of Florida clinics.

The UFCOM-J Continuity Clinic is an effective way to apply adult learning theory to medical education by providing integrated activities that focus on sequential skill-building opportunities while offering real life experiences in community settings.  The experience of working alongside preceptors who have long-term relationships with patients, families is invaluable.

It is also an exciting and rewarding opportunity to contribute to the development of a pediatrician.  This three year commitment will have an outstanding impact on them.  In addition to the overall experience, being a Continuity Clinic Preceptor also includes:
  • Courtesy UF Faculty Appointment
  • Annual Continuity Clinic Preceptor Dinner
  • Access to UF Faculty Development lectures that includes CMEs
  • Access to UF Borland Library online
  • Access to Hopkins Outpatient Pediatric Modules online (PEAC: Pediatrics Ambulatory Care Curriculum)
  • Copies of PREP CD’s for self-study
  • Opportunity to mentor resident Community Advocacy Initiatives
  • Opportunity to give Lectures/Conferences to Pediatric residents, Family Medicine residents, and UF medical students at Noon Conference
  • On-line access to all Noon Conferences for personal review or to review with trainees
  • Opportunity to mentor resident PBLI and QI projects
  • Opportunity to innovate current Continuity Clinic curriculum
  • Opportunity to participate/lead/innovate morning report (including remotely participating)
