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 points
Shields'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.
