A Medical Teacher's Manual for Success : Five Simple Steps Paperback / softback


Although most medical school faculty members are required to teach, the standard medical school curriculum doesn't tell them how to do it well.

This book does. An award-winning clinician-teacher, Helen M. Shields has spent her career training future doctors, researchers, and medical school instructors.

Here she shares classroom-tested methods for developing, implementing, and evaluating effective curricula for medical students.

Shields's five steps emphasize* extensive behind-the-scenes preparation, with a focus on visualizing both one's own performance and the desired student feedback* clear and logical presentations that match the material being taught* controlled exploration of topics through prepared questions and management of group dynamics* reinforcement of important concepts throughout the teaching session* a five-minute summary of take-home pointsShields's easy-to-follow guide discusses what teachers should do-and what they should not do.

She provides pertinent beginning-of-chapter questions, sample teaching materials, tips for last-minute assignments, and other pearls of wisdom.

Shields also describes the methods of dynamic and effective instructors, offers a step-by-step approach to preparation and presentation, and relates proven ways to address a variety of expected and unexpected situations. Innovative and practical, A Medical Teacher's Manual for Success is an essential resource for medical school faculty members who want to teach well.
