Teaching and learning directly involving patients is core to health professions' clinical training. These experiences will occur in diverse clinical settings across the continuum of healthcare. In addition, students can experience clinical care scenarios with standardized patients and simulation.
Teaching Assessment Tool - for Clinical Settings
This tool was developed to help instructors and observers to document their reflections in teaching situations in the clinical setting – on rounds, in the ambulatory setting, in the operating room, and across a shift. Use of the tool can lead to suggestions for enhancing learner involvement; improving the rapport between the learners and the instructor; altering how teaching is organized, presented, and conveyed; and modifying how feedback is provided.
The Teaching Assessment Tool is used as part of a Peer Review of Teaching. For more information contact the Center for Faculty Excellence at email@example.com.
