We’re privileged at Interior Health to support more than 6,000 students who walk through our doors, breathing fresh excitement into our hallways. Preceptorship, the advising relationship between an experienced professional and a student entering the field, serves as an absolute cornerstone of education in health care. 

IH’s dedicated employees spend more than 500,000 hours serving as preceptors across the organization each year.
