AUD 853 - Preceptor Training

8 weeks/2 credit hours

This preceptor-training module provides instruction in adult learning styles, how to set goals and provide constructive feedback, the development of professionalism, and strategies to facilitate critical thinking and case management skills in the trainee. Audiologists attain mainly theoretical knowledge in the academic classroom and clinical knowledge and skills in the clinical setting. Audiologists who are going to serve, as preceptors for audiology students also need to learn concepts and skills related to the supervisory process and how to be a mentor and teacher in the clinical setting. The primary goal of this module is to provide the supervising audiologist with knowledge and skills to be a successful preceptor for audiology students and/or a supervisor for audiology employees. The concepts covered in this module will be useful for audiologists who are involved in clinical training with audiology students and new employees, as well as audiologists in supervisory positions who cross-train audiology staff for new roles, evaluate performance of staff and provide feedback to supervisees.
