Presbyterian Healthcare Services, founded in New Mexico in 1908, is a locally owned, statewide, not-for-profit healthcare system serving one in three new Mexicans. We have nine award-winning hospitals in seven communities and more than 100 clinics and urgent care locations throughout New Mexico offering access to over 50 specialties, all dedicated to providing patient centered care.

Residents and students must be currently enrolled in an accredited academic program, be in good academic standing, and be attending an institution with which Presbyterian has a current affiliation agreement.

To see if your school has a current affiliation agreement, please email Presbyterian’s clinical rotations team at

If your educational institution does not have an affiliation agreement in place with Presbyterian, we would be happy to start the process with your school’s clinical advisor. Keep in mind that processing new Affiliation Agreements is a legal contracting process and can take up to 90 days to complete.

Finding a Preceptor

Please contact your school’s clinical coordination staff to assist you in finding a preceptor within Presbyterian. The Presbyterian medical education department does not coordinate preceptor/student placement.

Once you find a preceptor, complete the Preceptor/ Learner Agreement form. A new agreement form is required for each rotation. You can upload a PDF file of your completed form in your application submission.
