Medical schools are increasingly integrating authentic clinical experiences for students in the earliest stages of their curricula. There are many benefits to this early clinical exposure: enculturation into the medical community, opportunities to practice basic clinical skills, observing professionalism in practice, and reduction of the chasm between “pre-clinical” and “clinical” learning. But for preceptors, it can be challenging to provide meaningful activities that fully engage early learners with limited clinical knowledge. In this podcast, Dr. Jackson discusses how preceptors can optimize the medical education of beginning medical students in the clinical setting.
