Master Clinical Teachers Program

Master Clinical Teachers Program

The Master Clinical Teachers (MCT) program provides individualized attention to students’ clinical skills. MCTs are experienced clinicians who set aside a significant portion of their time just to teach students. MCTs meet with students individually and in pairs at the patient’s bedside to provide customized learning as well as formative assessment about how students are progressing along their professional journey. These meetings occur about every two weeks during the second year of medical school. They are designed to be “Show me what you can do on your own” sessions.

The MCT directly observes the student performing a history and physical examination, provides direct bedside feedback, and discusses assessment, differential diagnosis, and diagnostic plans. Emphasis is placed on watching to what extent the student can perform independently and on providing direct, at-the-bedside feedback to the student regarding clinical skills.
