Preceptor Training Resources


We appreciate your willingness to help us in training USU Dietetic Interns. Working with interns is a fulfilling experience, yet it can also be challenging.  ACEND® (Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition & Dietetics), our accrediting body, asks that we provide training resources to our preceptors.  We have created four short preceptor training modules to help you as you precept interns.

At the bottom of this page you will find a link to the CDR Dietetics Preceptor Training Program and a link to CDR's page with information on how to report and claim CPEUs for precepting.
