“I was thrilled to hear that I am honored with the Preceptor of the Year Award because I so value the medical students' education and emphasize that they have a very important role as part of the healthcare team,” Dr. Green says. “I like to teach what it means to be a physician in one's own community and how important it is to get to know one's colleagues and one's patients. When they work with me, I want them to understand what life is really like as a doctor.”
