Preceptor: Ideas and Inspiration for Mountain West Clinical Educators

Preceptor: Ideas and Inspiration for Mountain West Clinical Educators, a quarterly e-newsletter. Medical education in the Mountain West region relies heavily on clinician educators from the community. This newsletter is designed to support community clinical faculty in the region to enhance their skills as educators, to understand emerging trends in medical education, and to integrate the health humanities, including ethics, social justice, history, law, and art, into medical practice and clinical teaching. The newsletter is curated, written, and edited by medical educators in the American Mountain West with occasional guest contributions from colleagues farther afield.
