About the Longitudinal Teacher/Coach Program

LTC information

LTC role

LTCs are primarily responsible for the teaching of clinical skills and case-based learning curriculum across Phase 1 of the ForWard curriculum, and the coaching of teamwork skills and professionalism and the fostering of lifelong learning with critical reflection across all three phases of the curriculum.

Meet the LTCs

Thirty-eight physicians known for their dedication to teaching and patient-centered care were selected from the School of Medicine and Public Health faculty to lead Patient Centered Education (PaCE) and serve as longitudinal teacher/coaches.

During Phase 1 of the ForWard Curriculum, medical students participate in Patient Centered Education Cases, which connect concepts in a way that makes them relevant and applicable to authentic clinical scenarios. In addition to medical knowledge, PaCE Cases create an environment that enhances learning in many other important competency areas, such as problem solving, teamwork, communication, lifelong learning and professionalism.
