Preceptor Training


Preceptor training is a one-day workshop for those taking on an intern. The workshop is tailored specifically to help EVOLVE intern preceptors develop the necessary skills to ensure fair and valid assessment of their intern throughout their intern year.

Preceptor training is run face to face and is provided free of charge. You will need to arrange your own transport to and from the venue. Preceptor training is held in the main centres around the country in February each year. There is a catch-up session for preceptors who have an intern starting mid year or for whatever circumstances, a change in preceptor is necessary. Please contact one of the EVOLVE team for these dates.

You must attend your preceptor training within TWO months of taking an intern. As part of the workshop there is some pre and post course work to complete. You will need to complete the post course work within ONE month of your training.

Training is valid for 3 years before a refresher course is required. However, if a preceptor takes an intern each year, the refresher course only needs to be completed every 6 years.

Please note: you are only able to attend preceptor training if you have an intern or are about to have an intern start with you.
