Six-Week Preceptorship Begins at KSB Hospital in Dixon, IL

This week, the Six-Week Interprofessional Preceptorship began at KSB Hospital in Dixon, IL. The Six-Week Preceptorship is set in a rural community where students majoring in healthcare professions will shadow with healthcare professionals of different disciplines and work together on a project to impact the local community. This immersion experience allows the students to learn first-hand about rural life and rural healthcare.
At KSB Hospital, the four students are Christopher Zeuthen (Pre-Med; Emory University), Alexandra Gomez (Pre-Physical Therapy, Eastern Illinois University), Caleb Drew (Physician Assistant, Augustana College), and Kori Allen (Nursing, Western Illinois University).
The faculty preceptor who will be leading the students in weekly didactic sessions and a community service learning project is Beth Squires, Assistant Director of External & Pipeline Projects at the National Center for Rural Health Professions.
