    So I know that my physician has acted as preceptor for residents...

    What's the verb form? MS word suggests that:

    "the physician precepted the residents" is not a correct usage.

    Any thoughts?

    (this is in pre-allo because it was part of my PS).

    Any help is appreciated.

    I've no idea, maybe use a different word that is more common?

    At my school our professors just use the word "preceptor" as a verb. I don't think this is really grammatically correct, though.
