Target Audience

Preceptors and clinical instructors. 

Purpose

Des Moines University is supportive of healthcare providers who choose to actively participate in the education of our students by offering excellent clinical training opportunities. Preceptors not only transmit skills but are mentors who convey the core values that are important to Des Moines University: accountability, collaboration, honesty, inclusiveness, and wellness. Preceptors do what no textbook or classroom can accomplish. The students benefit from the community-based experience while preceptors benefit from integrating new ideas and techniques into their practices that are currently being taught in academic health sciences institutions. Join us for a series of educational opportunities which provide precepting pearls to aid in shaping the next generation of clinicians.

Objectives

  • Describe why direct observation of the learner is important.
  • Practice strategies for making direct observation acceptable to the learner and to the patient.
  • Use strategies for making the observation process purposeful and systematic.
  • Identify strategies for getting your staff (e.g. physician assistants, nurses) involved in direct observation of students.
