Tackling the barriers to evaluating medical learners

Evaluating medical learners is a key component of documenting learner performance and identifying remediation needs.  However, multiple barriers exist to obtaining adequate evaluations of learner performance. Preceptors often perceive completing evaluations to be difficult and time consuming. This workshop will focus on identifying strategies to provide solid performance evaluations while improving preceptor satisfaction with the evaluation process.
