Precepting PEERS Day is an introduction for new residents and fellows into the role of mentor and preceptor. Traditionally, the clinical years of undergraduate medical education has been provided by teaching faculty, community-based volunteer physicians and medical residents. Graduate medical education training is also characterized by senior residents and fellows teaching junior residents. The model of peer to peer education has proven effective. This half-day event has been established to introduce the techniques used by successful preceptors as well as to teach the mechanics of precepting such as completing required evaluations.
Acting as a preceptor will allow you the opportunity to provide your peers (medical students and residents) with the following opportunities:
- Positive role model who can answer questions and engage in discussion.
- A sense of welcome into the medical care team
- Practical application of knowledge with immediate feedback.
In the past, precepting PEERS has been offered as half-day events and sessions such as:
- The “One Minute Preceptor”
- “Residents as Teachers”
- Completing evaluations using E* Value (for medical students) and New Innovations (for residents)
