In addition to the links to resources supporting our "Objectives for Queen's FM teachers" that are noted below, preceptors have an Ontario website designed to support their roles as teachers of FM residents.

The site's resource topics include How we Learn; Preparing to Teach; Orienting Learners; Teaching with Patients; Teaching Techniques, Clinical Skills and Tips; Observation, Evaluation and Feedback; The Learner in Difficulty; and Teaching IMGs. The site also includes key teaching documents and books, and links to a wide variety of education - and faculty development - related websites and events.
