The Department of Midwifery is hiring a Preceptor Coordinator at the Bastyr University Kenmore campus. The Department of Midwifery is a leader in educating childbirth professionals. We offer two master’s degree programs, and are proud to see our graduates in leadership roles throughout the U.S. and Canada. The work we do extends past our classrooms into the community of educators who oversee and facilitate our students’ clinical training. How midwives are trained is important.
The Preceptor Coordinator facilitates the preceptors’ experience in our program from inception of new clinical training sites, to supporting the continuing education, mentorship, and growth of current preceptors. The primary role of the Preceptor Coordinator is to be the point-of-contact for our clinical instructors and to support their experience as educators, from the smallest administrative detail to growing the program and preceptor skills.
About Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Bastyr:
Bastyr University believes that inclusive diversity is essential for achieving academic excellence and creating a profoundly enriching university experience. Our faculty and staff are committed to achieving our mission by educating students to be future leaders that bring the natural health arts and sciences to people from all backgrounds. Promoting an educational environment that allows students, faculty and staff to develop their talents while experiencing a sense of community, we expect campus members to engage in respectful communication, behaviors and thoughtful self-reflection, increase their understanding of cultures and empower people who are disenfranchised, marginalized or oppressed. In so doing, the University pledges to prepare our students (and support faculty and staff) to recognize and appropriately respond to health inequities that affect multiple communities. This involves infusing DEI knowledge, skills, and practices in all academic programs, clinical training and patient services. In all, Bastyr University is dedicated to the welfare of our students and patients as well as to promoting equal opportunity and access in education and health care.
In alignment with Bastyr’s DEI commitment, applications from members of underrepresented groups are encouraged.
Bastyr University Department of Midwifery strives for continuous challenge and growth in our personal and professional commitment to equity and anti-oppression.
