Webinar: Increasing Capacity and Joy in Precepting

When: Thursday, June 25, 2020

Time: 1:00 – 2:00 pm (EST)


Preceptors in rural practice sometimes find it difficult to precept even one learner. Precepting more than one might seem impossible. But in fact come preceptors have found joy in just that! In this professional development webinar Dr. Schmidt will share her experience and lessons learned from precepting 3-6 learners in a teaching half-day in the office.

Following this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Increase their own capacity for precepting more than one learner.
  2. Promote the model of “super-precepting” through creatively constructing high cacacity teaching half-days in their own practice or group
  3. Increase joy in precepting
  4. Join the Rural PREP community of practice in rural primary care health professions education and training
