The Ohio State University College of Medicine has a rich history of curricular innovation.  As we prepare students for post-graduate training opportunities in institutions worldwide and meet the changes in healthcare, we must continuously improve and update our curriculum. The Lead.Serve.Inspire. curriculum will ensure that we develop physicians who will improve people’s lives through personalized healthcare and service. 

The Longitudinal Practice Preceptorship (LP) spans over the first two years of medical school with students placed in a clinical practice setting early in their first year. The curriculum’s focus on a team-based clinical experience enhances the students’ integration into clinical practice and teaches them to apply foundational science concepts to patient care. Clinical preceptors monitor and facilitate medical students' clinical learning experience and serve as mentors.

LP Preceptor of the year

2022 Longitudinal Practice Preceptor of the Year Award 

Don Mack, MD

Donald Mack, MD, CMD, FAAFPDr. Mack works as a geriatrician in the Department of Family Medicine at Ohio State University Medical Center and remains committed to educating the next generation of health care providers in his area of expertise. He is an exemplary preceptor in the Longitudinal Practice program and highly deserving of this honor.

Dr. Mack joined LP at its inception and precepted multiple students over the years. Students consistently remark on his ability to balance autonomy to allow them to see patients independently while also providing them with ample support and guidance. Dr. Mack encourages students to set their own goals and pushes them to grow in their role to care for patients. Students remark that he invests in their learning with one student noting, “he is very kind and takes his time with me, but he also challenges me to take the next step in my development.”

Congratulations Dr. Mack!
