Thank you note from 2nd year, Humber College TCM Program
We completed our volunteer time (for now) as a preceptor for two students from the Humber College TCM program this summer. Preceptors have been where students are trying to get and years of experience have taught us to be proficient and productive professionals. So it made sense to us, why not impart real-life knowledge so the next generation can be even better?
Following the entry level competencies for TCM in Canada, critical thinking for both preceptors and students were guided through the TCM Diagnosis Reflection Tool and the Clinical Assessment Plan.
There are a few key things we have learnt and shared with our students:
Expect and embrace both mistakes and success. These disciples us to be critical thinkers and critical thinking builds confidence and independence
Embrace our intent and purpose in helping our patients and provide a patient-centered healthcare
But, most of all, love what we do and have fun learning!
Good luck to these students as they move on to Year 2 (3 Year program)! 🎉👍
