Focusing on Practice-Based Reflection and Improvement

Physicians are life-long learners, continually renewing our banks of knowledge and adding new components.  Practice-based reflection helps us become better preceptors by learning from our experiences and determining how to improve.

The goal is to role model continuous self-assessment and life-long learning.  Specific competencies within this domain include:

  • Model the appropriate use of evidence-based medicine in clinical practice 
  • Seek feedback from the learner and rotation director; identify and act on improvement goals
  • Engage in continuous learning as physician and teacher with targeted teaching goals
  • ACF promotion policy
  • Annual ACF feedback letters information

PNWU is pleased to partner with the American Board of Family Medicine as a sponsoring institution offering Performance Improvement (PI) continuing certification credit (previously MOC Part IV) to ABFM diplomats who provide personal instruction, training, and supervision to a medical student or resident and who participate in teaching improvement activity.
