Training and Development will identify available preceptors for educational experience requests. Students should not contact Rush Memorial Hospital providers directly for educational experiences. 

Being a CMA/RMA student at RMH WIC was an absolute pleasure. The entire staff was extremely helpful, and taught me so much during my rotation. Jamie Smith was my preceptor and I am so thankful for her patience and dedication to helping me learn. Dakota was also very an amazing teacher, and was super helpful and flexible with my school schedule. Everyone made me feel welcome, and that’s when I knew that I would love to work with the team at WIC, along with everyone else at RMH.
