Live Virtual Learning Opportunity & Precepting and Telehealth Medicine Content

This workshop focuses on competence and skills that nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians need when serving as preceptors. These include time management, critical thinking, providing evaluation and feedback, learner styles, motivating, working with a challenging preceptee, and precepting strategies for telemedicine.

Statement of Need and Purpose

Advance practice provider (APP) training programs rely on high quality graduate clinical preceptors to provide real-world clinical experiences and socialize students to the role of the APP. Nurse practitioner, physician assistant, and physician training programs often do not include preceptor development. Many graduate clinical preceptors have never received formal preceptor training and feel deficient in their ability to set goals, create an adequate learning environment, provide feedback, and evaluate student performance in a busy clinic setting. 

The purpose of this workshop is to prepare high quality graduate clinical preceptors to provide real-world clinical experiences and socialize students to the role of physician, physician associate, or advanced practice registered nurse.  The workshop focuses on skills that graduate clinical  preceptors need to serve as preceptors in with short lectures and active learning, small group discussions. The topics include time management, critical thinking, providing evaluation and feedback, assessing learner styles, motivation, working with the challenging student and precepting in telemedicine.  The content is geared toward an interprofessional group and will address precepting strategies for a variety of settings, including inpatient and clinic.

Target Audience

This workshop is designed to meet the needs of nurse practitioners, physician assistants and physicians and other health care providers who precept graduate students in their clinical practice.

Elements of Competence

  • The American Board of Medical Specialties: Practice-based learning improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills and Professionalism
  • Nursing and Interprofessional: Roles/Responsibilities, Interprofessional communication and Teams and Teamwork

Learning Objectives

Following this workshop, learners will be able to:
