Thank you for taking the time to teach Clinical Skills in years 1 and 2 of the foundation curriculum. Your role is to facilitate a guided 4-hour small group discussion that helps learners acquire, consolidate, and apply their learning of foundational clinical skills relating to: 1) History-taking; 2) Communication; and 3) Physical Examinations. The resources on this site will help you prepare for your teaching role.
We have resources for new and returning Clinical Skills tutors, focused events to help further develop your teaching skills, and some just-in-time faculty development sessions.
All MD Program teachers are asked to become familiar with the following resources when preparing for their teaching roles (1) Psychological Safety and (2) Learner Mistreatment.
The faculty development session, recording, and tutor manual were very helpful. I felt well prepared going into it without prior experience, and I felt well supported at the session, with the just-in-time opportunity for coaching.
