Preceptor Development Program

This preceptor development program was created to provide faculty development training to our increasing and busy community-based medical educators.

Community-based physicians teaching TTUHSC School of Medicine students must be aware of core competencies, learning principles, and other teaching strategies as required by the medical school teaching curriculum. These easy reading modules are relevant in helping meet the challenges of teaching and assessing students.

In accordance with our CME mission, the key to providing these quick and effective free on-line CME modules is to identify gaps in improving 1) physician knowledge 2) physician competence 3) performance-in-practice and/or 4) patient outcomes of the core competencies and learning priniciples/objectives set by the school. This course is presented by faculty at TTUHSC and meets the requirements of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and is designed to offer .5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit (s) TM.
