Clinical Coaching (EDU360)


Course Memo

The transition from clinician to clinical educator can present some challenges. New skillsets must be developed as healthcare providers shift their priorities from caring for the patient towards coaching the learner through the clinical experience. In this course the student will recognize and understand the responsibilities of the clinical faculty role and explore best practice for teaching in the clinical environment. Using the concept of clinical coaching, the student will recognize how to encourage the learner to critically think and use effective clinical judgment in various scenarios. Students will identify clinical activities and assessments which evaluate student progress in the clinical environment. Legal and ethical issues surrounding the student/educator relationship within the clinical environment will also be explored. Credit: 3 hours. This course is offered in an online format. Fall.
