"The Fundamentals for Medical Educators curriculum is a valuable resource, regardless of your level of precepting expertise.

"New preceptors will find tools to help build a strong foundation in the key principles of clinical teaching. Experienced preceptors will find new precepting pearls or techniques to refresh their clinical teaching routine.

"One of my favorite aspects is that most individual videos were 10 minutes or less, making it easy to incorporate them into my busy workday!"

"Fun 4 Me puts so much foundational information in one location!

"It's a phenomenal introduction for teachers just getting established in medical education, a great review for expert educators, and a complete resource for all.

"I am planning to use some of the components in a resident-as-teacher curriculum, and I know I will be back often to refresh my own knowledge, skills, and attitudes."
