Rockford Spine Center Physiatrist Dr. Marie Walker has been voted as favorite preceptor for the second year in a row by the University of Illinois College of Medicine family practice residents. The recognition was for the 2013-2014 school year.
Third year family practice residents rotate each month through roughly 12 medical specialties. At the end of each year the residents vote for their favorite preceptor, or mentor. Dr. Walker has been a required orthopedic rotation for three years. The residents see patients under Dr. Walker’s guidance. She teaches them about orthopedic and spinal conditions and they learn how to perform injections.
“I’m honored the residents appreciate my teaching and that they look forward to this rotation,” said Dr. Walker, Rockford Spine Center. “Being involved in this program is extremely rewarding for me. When you’re teaching people who are excited and really want to learn, it’s fun.”
