A student's evaluation must be completed by someone who has been approved as a preceptor by Midwestern University CPG, and has spent a significant amount of time with the student in order to grade him/her fairly. You can look at the list of preceptors at your site by selecting the appropriate site when you log in and on the Affiliate Profile page for that site, click on Site Information in the middle of the screen. All the preceptors with RMS access will be listed here. Please contact our office if someone other than the assigned preceptor will be completing the evaluation.
