Continuously Enhance Your Clinical Teaching Skills

The skill of effective clinical teaching, just like clinical knowledge, can be developed by assessment paired with professional development. You may want to cultivate teaching competencies like role-modeling, communication skills, teaching methods, and learner assessment. As you begin to identify gaps in your teaching skills, you can then strive to incorporate improvements by regular self-assessment and by asking for feedback from colleagues and learners.

Teaching Physician provides numerous opportunities to enhance your effectiveness as a teacher. You can explore the site by  finding topics as you need them, or you can focus on one of our learning paths (e.g., Teacher and Assessment, or The New Preceptor Path). You can also use the Self-Assessment Tool to create a personalized learning plan to follow over the course of a few months.
