Preceptor Quotes

This is a great program to help students who don’t have the privilege to take on a fellowship that is not paid because they need to work throughout the school year, and this program allows the student to accept a fellowship that may interest them more.

Taking part in the PHFP as a preceptor was a fantastic experience. Not only did I benefit from phenomenal, immediately impactful research support moving critical projects forward, but I learned more about my own work through the process of teaching her about all that we do on our team. I found I truly enjoy mentoring and plan to continue as a preceptor.
