Focus of the Month Newsletter
Get Inspired with Seventeen-Patient Encounter Scenarios
Preceptors encounter a wide variety of learning opportunities while guiding learners through their earliest patient care experiences. Having an idea ahead of time of how you might respond to situations in a meaningful way can save time and facilitate learning in the clinical environment.
Teaching Physician offers 17 scenarios that can not only bring teaching-and-learning encounters to life for the reader, but can also be shared with residents who teach. The scenarios on Teaching Physician include medical mistakes, talkative patients with many symptoms, and cardiac risk assessment. As you read the scenarios, pay special attention to how the preceptor responds to the learner in each situation.
