The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Longitudinal Teacher/Coach (LTC) Program is an integral component of the ForWard Curriculum.

LTCs follow students through the three-phase ForWard Curriculum. A major feature of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health's ForWard Curriculum is to provide each of our medical students with a longitudinal teacher/coach to allow for maximized competency-based skill development across all phases of our curriculum.

LTCs have primary responsibility for facilitating the Patient-Centered Education (PaCE) Case Groups and teaching the ForWard Clinical Skills Curriculum. LTCs are responsible for teamwork skills and professionalism coaching and the fostering of lifelong learning and critical self-reflection across all three phases.
