Precepting During the Pandemic: Share Your Story

Over the last year, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for food and nutrition practitioners, including preceptors. Preceptors have needed to develop creative solutions to address the circumstances and evolving education needs of nutrition and dietetics students and interns. There are stories of uncertainty and worry, but also of adaptation and innovation. We want to hear yours.

How has COVID-19 impacted your role as a preceptor? What challenges did you overcome during the last year? What changes did you have to make to help the students and interns you precept? What was a positive experience you encountered while precepting an intern or student?

Please share your precepting stories! Your experiences can help inform the development of tools and Academy member benefits (many of which may already be available!) to help support nutrition and dietetics practitioners and preceptors now and in the future.
