Preceptorship Information

2017 Preceptorship Brochure

Overview

At the 18th annual Whole Person Care Preceptorship (WPCP) held in Southern California, you’ll receive professional training to ethically and sensitively assess and address the spiritual needs of your patients. Weekly you’ll work with and learn from seasoned Christian physicians and healthcare professionals who regularly integrate their faith into their patient care in a variety of specialties and settings. Plus you’ll have ample opportunities to do the same with real patients in both clinical and hospital situations.

Most importantly, you’ll grow and reconnect with God and become better prepared to lead colleagues spiritually. You will enjoy ample time for personal devotionals and learn from experts in the fields of personal ministry, bioethics, apologetics, and theology.

As you serve and enjoy the incredible attractions of California, you’ll build lasting relationships and community with like-minded students and return to school rejuvenated and refreshed. The WPCP is a joint venture of Medical Strategic Network, Cru, and Loma Linda University Medical Center.
