Precepting: A Win, Win, Win Webinar

According to the Robert Graham Center, Ohio will require an additional 681 primary care physicians by 2030. One strategy in supporting the next generation of family physicians is prioritizing mentorship and precepting. This piece of the puzzle is critical to ensuring a strong, confident, and empowered family medicine pathway.

To provide support and education to family physicians, no matter where they are on the precepting spectrum, the OAFP Foundation (Foundation) hosted a webinar about all things precepting. This session was recorded and is available below for enduring continuing medical education (CME) credit through Tuesday, April 1, 2025.

This program highlights the unique role of community-based faculty in delivering medical educational programs. It reviews motivating factors and barriers that limit or promote involvement in clinical teaching, and discusses the importance of feedback and incentives in motivating participation in the educational program.

Additionally, resources are shared on how to improve teaching quality, along with strategies and tools available in the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Preceptor Expansion Initiative to motivate, mentor, monitor, and maintain community-based preceptor involvement in medical education.
