Clinical Teaching Learning Community: Supporting Clinical Teaching in the Health Professions

Teachers across our health professions academic programs must effectively teach diverse content, ranging from basic biomedical knowledge and applied problem solving skills to advanced clinical care and professional skills, in a wide variety of settings including classrooms, communities, clinical care areas, and other health care settings.

The clinical teaching learning community is designed to support the professional development needs of clinical faculty and preceptors across all UW-Madison health sciences schools. The community offers a central place to access and engage with interprofessional resources to those who teach in variety of settings.

By design, the community supports faculty who strive to earn Master Teacher designation through the UW-Madison Teaching Academy
