Practiced-Based Teaching is designed to help good clinicians become skilled practice-based teachers. When general practitioners begin as clinical teachers, they often make the mistake that they will find teaching easy. Unfortunately this is rarely true. Good clinicians are not necessarily good teachers, although they have the potential to become great teachers. This book is designed to assist that process. Whether the learners are medical students or GP registrars, whether the practice attachments are long or short, this book will help supervising general practitioners enhance and improve the teaching-learning process. The book covers practical teaching strategies such as sitting-in with learners, recording and reviewing consultations, using medical records, one-on-one tutorials, practice-based research projects, and small group teaching. There are also overview chapters on relevant educational theory including curriculum issues, assessment and evaluation. To become a clinical teacher is not just to share experience and wisdom with new practitioners, but to begin a journey of professional growth and development. This book will make this journey smoother, faster and lastly, more enjoyable for both teacher and learner.
