The role of the preceptor (teaching physician) within our medical community is of vital importance to the future of the medical profession. Preceptors help new physicians develop into mature medical professionals by passing on their knowledge, guiding and mentoring. In recognition of this important role, the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University has developed an online learning portal designed specifically for busy preceptors. The portal provides continuing professional development for practice-based preceptors and creates an arena for the exchange of ideas and experiences.

As a regular contributor of content to the portal, Dr. Cheri Bethune has been involved in developing the preceptor portal. “I’ve been a teacher of medical students and residents in my practice for a number of years now,” says Dr. Bethune, “and really enjoy helping young doctors in the process of becoming independent professionals. Teaching students takes time, and so to enable preceptors to enhance their teaching skills we have developed an online tool that supports preceptors by providing online course that will help them polish their skills.”

The portal provides accredited content, which enables existing preceptors to broaden their teaching techniques. There is opportunity, too, for online discussion with other preceptors across the province. The portal also provides information to physicians interested in becoming preceptors.

“In the next few months there will be a number of new courses added to the portal, which will increase the menu of courses offered,” says Dr. Bethune. “We invite all physicians interested in teaching to visit the portal, create a free account and try out some of our courses.”

Comments on how the portal may be improved to better to meet physician needs are welcome.
