Benefits of becoming a UTMB Community Teaching Physician
Most medical student preceptors are volunteer preceptors that offer their time to medical schools and their students.  This link provides information on the perks that UTMB offers to 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.
