Clinician Teacher Skills Course
Topical lectures and application exercises on skills and abilities supporting faculty training of residents in a training environment split between urban and rural health care settings will mitigate gaps in knowledge and ability by faculty in the Family Medicine Rural Residency Program. The selected topics for instruction and training were identified by a needs assessment sent to faculty of Baylor College of Medicine St. Luke's East Texas Family Medicine Residency Program. Recording of lectures and development of application exercises with a focus on case studies will support both group and individual approaches towards learning. Topics to be addressed are: Setting expectations with residents, resident feedback and assessment, impatient teaching, outpatient teaching, and giving effective lectures and presentations.
This activity is intended for family medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and fellows.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be able to:
- Practice evidence-based tools for providing formal and informal feedback to trainees.
- Reflect upon techniques and behaviors used by clinician educators to promote effective teaching during bedside teaching.
- Identify approaches and effective behaviors to facilitate effective instruction of learners on managing outpatient care.
- Discuss how didactic teaching will use adult learning principles as its foundation, by being interactive, experiential and relevant to the learners' experiences.
