TeachingPhysician.org is a comprehensive web-based resource that connects medical schools and residency programs to community preceptors.

See the full Topic Index here. Our help page for preceptors and administrators is here.

The American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Precepting Performance Improvement Program allows academic units (Sponsors) to offer Performance Improvement credit (MOC IV) to family physicians who teach medical students or residents and who participate in a teaching improvement activity.
In support of this, the interactive online self-assessment tool allows preceptors to self-identify their teaching competency areas and highlight areas of interest for future improvement. The results from the self-assessment tool contain links to faculty development content on TeachingPhysician.org. Preceptors can do this for their own benefit, or in an effort to fulfill the requirements of the Performance Improvement credit. The results of the self-assessment are private, and you need only share them with your institution if you choose to.
Help students take charge of their learning and workflow by identifying their own goals for the clinical rotation. Both you and the students should already be familiar with the broader institutional objectives and the basic content to be covered in the rotation. However, having a conversation with your students about their personal learning goals will facilitate active learning and encourage self-reflection.
Identifying the students' goals helps you understand their individual needs and education level. It also empowers students to understand the purpose of each clinical session and maximize learning opportunities. Additionally, these collaborative learning conversations set the groundwork for positive teacher/student relationships.
