Some ways to make our teaching be#er

A0tude
Good teaching starts with us The best clinical teachers are described as:
Enthusias.c Clear and organized Interact well with students

The focus shouldnt be on us. Listen more, talk less.

A0tude

Orient them
Tell your juniors what you want to see from them
What you want them to examine How to present a pa.ent How to write a progress note How many to see and how many to present to you

Orient them

Role Model
See the pa.ent together (one-on-one or in a group)

Especially with new doctors Saves .me Teaches much more than just talking alone Learning as a group can be less threatening and provides accountability (everyone knows what is expected)

Role Model

Dont get stuck in a rut


Dont do the same thing over and over again just because thats how youve always done it. Some.mes the way things are always done isnt the best way
