Clinical Teaching Resources for Preceptors

Thank you for taking a medical learner on placement in your community. On this page, clinical preceptors will find a set of resources that we hope you will find helpful for understanding your role, contractual obligations (i.e., PARO contract for residents), and some tools for teaching.

All medical learners are advised to contact their clinical placement facilitator or preceptor directly prior to the start of the rotation to discuss details of the placement.

Learner Assessments
Please remember, the responsibilities of clinical teachers include the completion of any assessments sent by NOSM or its learners.  These must be done within 6 weeks of completion of the placement.  The most valuable part of assessment is the feedback to the learner so please be sure to set aside time prior to the end of any rotation to meet with your learner to discuss the content, complete and submit the assessments.
