Clinic & Hospital Teaching

All doctors know that caring for real patients – in offices, hospitals, emergency rooms, and operating rooms –provide the most enduring and meaningful learning of one’s career. It is the job of our clinical teachers – both faculty and residents – to support our students in obtaining this most important clinical education. The most important ingredient in good clinical teaching is a passion for quality patient care. After that, learning some basic pointers on effective teaching in different settings, involving patients in the teaching process, and providing feedback and grounded assessment are all it takes to provide superb clinical learning for your students. Here you’ll find links to resources, including our own CME-earning Online Clinical Faculty Development Modules.
