The Only Such Program in the Nation
The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center’s Preceptorship Program is an on-site, intensive, 2-day training course for medical professionals. Participants study under the direction of The Celiac Disease Center’s celiac disease experts. The course includes formal instruction as well as hands-on training. The preceptorship program requires both a selection process for the best candidates as well as a nominal donation of $500 per physician or other medical professional, and $250 per nurse practitioner or dietitian to attend.
Since our first program in 2006, more than 200 preceptors have graduated from our trailblazing preceptorship program. The next Preceptorship Program is scheduled for December 2018. Applications may be submitted beginning January 15, 2017. Acceptance notices will be sent in October 2018. In the meantime, we are hoping to launch an online version of this course.
