Health professionals learn their trade on-the-job.most health professional teachers have not been trained to teach yet many of them have been teaching for years and are very good at what they do. Do you ever wonder how clinical teachers learn to teach in the absence of any formal faculty development? What do they know about teaching? What motivates them to teach and how do they conceive of their role? What do they understand about learning? What if any is the relationship between their chosen profession and their approach to teaching? This is the subject of my research and will inform the content of this blog.
