Roles & responsibilities

Please refer to the clinical instructors’ manual for all further details, as well as roles and responsibilities for clinical instructors.
An excerpt from the manual on the role of clinical instructor designates:

CI Designate:
“CI designates can be appointed to assist with competency assessments. CI designates should have a minimum of two years’ experience and have an affinity to work with students. Interest in clinical teaching can be demonstrated by the willingness to take a preceptorship/instructional skills course and/or be familiar with any preceptor information available. Please contact Clinical Coordinator for details.

Designates must complete the competency assessment form providing comments and examples where appropriate. The competency requires validation by the CI prior to sign off in CompTracker.”
