Welcome to Strategies in Clinical Teaching, a resource for faculty members of KUSM-W.
This site provides mini-modules on common teaching strategies, each designed to provide practical information on teaching in the community setting. We developed the modules based on the literature and information from other medical schools about clinical teaching – plus over thirty years experience of community based teaching at KUSM-W.
There is no single “best way” to teach medical students and residents. Teaching is a very personal experience and we each develop our own style and favorite techniques. We hope this site provides some new “pearls” to use in your own teaching. Nevertheless, KUSM-W faculty members are well-known for their interest in and dedication to teaching so we expect that much of the information from the educational experts and studies will be a validation of how you already teach.
The education of our students and residents depends on your expertise and enthusiasm for teaching. Some of the most common questions about teaching are addressed on the site in our FAQ but please let us know how we can help make teaching as effective, efficient, and enjoyable as possible for you.
We update this site regularly. Please send comments and suggestions on the site or other aspects of teaching at KUMC-W to firstname.lastname@example.org.
