The future of audiology lies with the generations of professionals to come; there is a critical need for current private practitioners to lead the way in precepting today. This presentation will address ways to motivate clinical audiologists to become preceptors, by reviewing the qualifications required for preceptors; and debunking many myths, such as the supposed CCC-A preceptor requirement. Topics covered will also include the reason for the need for preceptors in multiple practice environments, and discuss the many benefits of precepting for both the audiologist and the students. The desired outcome of this presentation is to combat the current and potential growing preceptor shortage and to close the "graduation gap." This course is a recording of a session at the Academy of Doctors of Audiology's 2016 AuDACITY conference.
