Serving as a teacher and instructor to graduate students from Salus University, Dr. Andrew Bradbury, medical director of the BYU-Idaho Student Health Center, received the Preceptor of the Year award for the state of Idaho for "outstanding dedication and commitment to the training and education of the Physician Assistant Class of 2012" on October 4.

"I'm really touched by it because I love teaching and precepting," Dr. Bradbury said.

A preceptor is a medical expert who serves as an instructor and helps students gain experience.

Dr. Bradbury served as preceptor for four students from Salus University. BYU-Idaho receives precepting students from Salus University's PA program, and in return, Salus University reserves four to six slots for BYU-Idaho students in its graduate program.

Dr. Bradbury's Preceptor of the Year Award also speaks well of the BYU-Idaho Student Health Center.

"The award reflects more on the Student Health Center than on me," Dr. Bradburysaid. "It is in line with what we do at the Health Center, which is provide high quality medicine and health care, as well as teaching opportunities."
