Content and Pedagogy in a Clinically Rich Residency

Additional Navigation

Candidates and mentors in our clinically rich residency models often report that they are better able to develop new strands around content and to try new approaches to deliver instruction. For the candidates, this is an opportunity to see theory in action; for the mentors this is an opportunity to try new things with the support of a novice teacher, or to integrate into his or her teaching new information and skills the novice and education faculty have to share.


Candidates and mentors also find that co-teaching in a clinically rich residency model strengthens implementation of pedagogical strategies, facilitates an ongoing exchange of ideas, and better supports student learning.
