Alumni Residencies

Many students wonder if spending four weeks on the whole person care preceptorship is a wise use of time. With the intense competition for residencies, some argue it would be better to spend that time doing research or a clerkship to enhance one’s residency applications. We understand the dilemma.

Perhaps the more critical question is whether God is trustworthy and able to place you in the residency he has planned for you. We believe that as you seek and follow his specific direction for your summer – whatever that may be – he is able to accomplish the specific plans he has for your training and your life.

While there are numerous factors involved in one’s residency selection, this list shows how some whole person care preceptorship alumni have faired in the match with many continuing in fellowships and sub-specialty fellowships.
