Michael Ward

The continued success and growth of distributed medical education into geographically dispersed communities has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of community-based clinician teachers. We have created a simple mnemonic to help capture, translate and review classic and contemporary teaching concepts for the busy community preceptor.
