Are you interested in teaching the next generation of physicians? The University of the Incarnate Word School of Osteopathic Medicine (UIWSOM) is actively recruiting physicians interested in being mentors, advisors, and teaching medical students in the local and rural communities. “Paying it forward” will enable practicing physicians to help train the next generation of physicians and carry the whole profession forward. If you have ever thought about precepting — now is the time to step forward.
