Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Evaluate current medical student teaching strategies and apply novel methods to deliver content and skills.
  • Explore free, peer-reviewed teaching modules targeted to medical students, physician extenders, and primary care residents.
  • Apply time-saving methods to effectively integrate new learners into a busy clinical practice.

All dermatologists are teachers–to medical students, primary care residents, physician extenders, referring providers in the community, and our office staffs. Have you been asked to teach in any of these contexts? We can help! We will present an AAD-sponsored curriculum of free, peer-reviewed learning modules that can be used as self-directed learning, or given as interactive lectures. We will demonstrate tips for incorporating effective teaching for various types of learners into a busy clinic, including how to focus the visit for the learner to succeed. These techniques maximize learning with minimal teaching time.
