Annual Report

We had a great SIG session at PAS 2016, which was a combined session with the Teaching in Community Settings SIG. We covered the hot topics of utilizing community preceptors in medical student education, recruitment of community preceptors, and opportunities for collaboration between academic centers and community providers. The participants were engaged and the discussion was great. We had some amazing presentations from educational and community leaders including:

  • Results from the COMSEP/AMSPDC Community Preceptor Task Force
    • Archie Chatterjee MD PhD, Sanford School of Medicine, University of South Dakota.
    • Mike Barone MD PhD, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
  • Results from the COMSEP Qualitative Community Preceptor Study
    • Julie Stamos MD, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
    • Cynthia Christy MD, University of Rochester Medical Center

We also had a mini-workshop on recruiting and maintaining community preceptors led by Chris Peltier. The session wrapped up with a very interactive Panel Discussion which included clerkship directors, clerkship coordinators, and community preceptors.
