Practice Based Small Group-Education – PBSG-ED Modules





The PBSG-ED Program  is a series of modules dedicated to enhancing the educational and supervisory skills of NOSM preceptors and clinical faculty. The modules provide continuing education in a case based format that makes judicious use of the most recent and best evidence available. Within each model, participants are introduced to several clinical cases of teaching and learning derived from the practices of physician or health-care professional preceptors. The cases are designed to promote discussion of challenging issues and dilemmas that are likely to arise when working with learners. Paired with the cases is a current review of the medical education literature which highlights important findings and principles for participants. Critical cases and relevant literature findings foster reflection and provide opportunities to refine skills. This prepares the way for clinician teachers to improve their knowledge on the selected topic along with acquiring new frameworks and skills which can be applied in the supervision of their next learner. There are currently ten modules in the series. Printed materials include a facilitator’s guide which can be used to organize an educational session of 1-2 hours in your community for a group of 5-12 interested preceptors.
