1. Teaching, Evaluation and Feedback
Georgia Health Sciences University (GHSU) Medical College of Georgia faculty will
discuss the importance of community-based education for health sciences students and
the realities of hosting students in a busy practice.
2. Incorporating Students into a Busy Practice
T. Andrew Albritton, MD is associate dean for curriculum and professor of Medicine
at the GHSU Medical College of Georgia. Dr. Albritton will discuss the principles
of teaching and evaluating students in a busy practice.
3. The Problem Learner
As a preceptor you've probably had some super-star learners that you'd love to recruit to work in your practice. On the other hand, you may have had experiences where you couldn't wait for a learner to finish their rotation. What makes those learners so difficult? This session will discuss common problems with learners and some specific strategies to help those students succeed.
4. As Strong as the Weakest Link: Teamwork in Healthcare Delivery
Multidisciplinary teams working together make fewer mistakes and ultimately achieve
better outcomes for their patients. Statewide AHEC Network Program Executive Director
Denise Kornegay, MSW will discuss the most effective methods for integrating health
professionals into a cohesive multidisciplinary team; creating structures and communication
patterns that foster interdisciplinary care; and identifying and addressing team challenges.
5. Integrating Students into the Community
It's not enough to simply have health careers students come to your community for
a clerkship - how can you show them that your community is a great place to live?
Do you need ideas for recruitment and retention of health careers students? Find out
what students want from a community and how you can integrate them into your area
during their clerkship.
6. Teaching Cultural Competence: Practical Ideas for Improving Health Outcomes
W. Kent Guion, MD, MA, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion at Georgia Health
Sciences University, will address cultural competency and unconscious bias in healthcare
practice. A 2002 Institute of Medicine report noted that sources of health disparities
“include…cultural and linguistic barriers, and a subtle mix of bias and prejudice
during the clinical encounter.” Academic, professional, and government organizations
agree that cultural competency should be part of health care providers’ knowledge
base. Community-based faculty and preceptors can be instrumental in developing cultural
competency as an essential skill for health professions students. Clinical teaching
during clerkships offers many opportunities for preceptors and students to learn from
diverse patient encounters.
NEW for 2013:
The Millennial Learner: Addressing the Expectations of Today's Students
(40 Minutes) Do the students who come to your practice these days seem somehow different
from your memories of school and college? Do you know how they learn, how they see
themselves, and how they can be engaged in the learning process? Richard Callan,
DMD, discusses how today's medical and dental students differ from previous generations
and how different approaches can help instructors meet the challenges of teaching
the millennial generation.
