Intended for medical education courses, the 17 brief chapters in this textbook introduce education theory and course design, describe skills for teaching in the clinical environment, and apply assessment principles to skill-based and workplace-based assessment. Color figures and sample evaluation forms make the high quality text an outstanding value.

Originally published in 2003, the second edition adds three closing chapters on teaching professionalism, faculty development, and supporting students in difficulty.
