Benefits of becoming a UTMB Community Teaching Physician
Most medical student preceptors are volunteers that offer their time to teach medical students within their practices. This link provides information on the perks that UTMB offers to community-based teaching physicians who teach for the Practice of Medicine 1 Course (POM1), the 3rd year clerkships, and the 4th year Ambulatory Community Selective (ACS).
Faculty Development Modules
The Office of Clinical Education has developed informational presentations on topics in medical education which we hope community-based teaching physicians will find useful. Even if stated in the modules, CME credit is no longer available for these modules. We invite you to review the modules and provide feedback.
- The Community Physician's Role in Medical Education (PPT)
- Providing Feedback and Evaluation (PPT)
- Applying Teaching and Learning Styles (PPT)
- Defining Professionalism
- The Role of Medical Education in Career Advancement (PPT)

UTMB Faculty, course coordinators and AHEC coordinators will be asked to nominate Community Teaching Physicians that have excelled in teaching UTMB medical students. This link will tell you more about the annual "Teacher of Distinction" award.
