Georgia Preceptor Tax Incentive Program (GA-PTIP) 2015 Update: The Role of Physician Preceptors


Denise Kornegay, MSW
Program Director
Georgia Statewide AHEC Network



Program Description

During the 2014 Georgia General Assembly, SB391 was enacted to provide a tax deduction for uncompensated physician preceptors who provide community based training for Georgia medical, physician assistant and nurse practitioner students. The impact of this program will reward physicians who volunteer their valuable time to train the next generation of MDs, DOs, PAs, and NPs. It will also assist academic centers as they recruit preceptors for their students. The Georgia Statewide AHEC Network Program Office was charged with administering the Georgia Preceptor Tax Incentive Program and certifying physician activity towards obtaining the deduction. This program provides GA-PTIP 2015 Updates for the physician preceptors.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:
- Understand the physician requirements that must be fulfilled in order to receive the Georgia State Income Tax deduction
- Discuss the rationale for the newly created tax deduction commencing July 2014
- Distribute information related to the AHEC certification mechanism to appropriate physician preceptors
