A very special thank you to participants who attended the Community Preceptor Retreat in Wakefield, Quebec on March 22-23rd on the “Trials and tribulations of supervising family medicine residents in a community and rural setting”.
There was a full day of lively teaching moments on how to better support your learner in community and rural-based practice. The group reviewed the role of the community preceptor in the era of competency-based medical education, shared and reflected on supervision approaches across diverse community and rural practices to understand how to better address the needs of residents and reviewed and debated how millennial learners require us to change how we teach.
The afternoon session focused on identifying strategies and resources to support a struggling learner in the community. Dr. Mamta Gautam wrapped up the day by addressing how to better manage stress as community preceptors using system-level initiatives acknowledging the increased technological demands, patient demands, and multiple generations in the workplace.
A very special thank you to Dr. Lisa Moore and Dr. Eric Wooltorton for the integral role they each played in planning the day and for all their hard work in delivering a memorable faculty development program. View photos from the event.
