Clinical Educator Track

The UTHSC Clinical Educator Track is a 9-month program for instructors interested in developing and/or deepening their understanding of the pedagogical strategies used to effectively teach students in the clinical setting.  The Clinical Educator program enrollment is open to all UTHSC clinical instructors at any level.  The program will contain several components:

  1. A series of monthly face-to-face workshops on issues related to teaching in the clinical setting. Topics will include challenges to teaching in the clinical setting, instructional strategies to optimize learning and feedback techniques.  Workshops will be led by UTHSC faculty, TLC staff, and outside speakers.
