Can I claim the Physician Preceptorship Tax Credit?

A licensed physician who served as a physician preceptor in a preceptorship program authorized by an accredited medical school in Maryland may claim a credit in the amount of $1,000 for each student for whom the licensed physician served as a physican preceptor without compensation.

To qualify for the credit, the licensed physician must have worked in an area of Maryland identified as having a health care workforce shortage by the Department of Mental Health and Hygiene. The licensed physician must have worked a minimum of three rotations, each consisting of 160 hours of community-based clinical training. The amount of this credit may not exceed $10,000.

For purposes of the credit, "preceptorship program" means an organized system of clinical experience that, for the purpose of attaining specified learning objectives, pairs an enrolled student of a liaison committee on medical education-accredited medical school in Maryland or an individual in a postgraduate medical training program in Maryland with a licensed physician who meets the qualifications as a preceptor.

For more information about certification, go to the Department of Health website .

If you claim this credit, you'll need to upload a copy of your certification in order to e-file your Maryland return. We'll ask for this on a later screen.

If you mail your return, be sure to attach a copy of your certification to your tax return.
