CHILD ABUSE MEDICAL PRECEPTORSHIP
The Child Abuse Medical Preceptorship (CAMP) program, managed by the Midwest Regional Children’s Advocacy Center (MRCAC), aims to increase access to quality medical care for victims of abuse by providing practitioners with hands-on technical skills, training, and mentorship.
CAMP builds upon our foundational medical education programs by connecting providers with highly-qualified centers of practice in their region to receive hands-on technical skills and education. This a four-day intensive clinical experience combining observation, hands-on simulation, and technical training; it also includes enrollment in myCasereview. Ongoing mentorship is available at an additional cost.
