The Wray Clinic has been committed to the education of medical students for over 20 years. In honor of that commitment, the University of Colorado School of Medicine Rural Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship (LIC) has awarded Wray Clinic the Teaching Excellence Award by Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. This award is a national award given to outstanding medical practices that foster excellent learning environments and welcome the students as a part of their healthcare team and local community.
“We are one of many rural hospitals where students can choose to do rotations,” said Wray Clinic’s Physician, Dr. Lindsey Paulson. “To be one of a small number of sites to be recognized for this award is an honor because teaching students is something at which we at WCDH really shine! Every employee participates in helping to make these young people into the best doctors they can be.”
Medical practices that receive this award:
- Demonstrate a culture of support for the education of primary care providers with leadership who communicate that participation in education benefits the practice and patient care
- Welcome learners and allows them to participate meaningfully as members of the health care team in roles appropriate to their level of training
- Model patient-centered care
- Allow students to write patient encounter notes in HER
Congratulations to Wray Clinic care team for being a highly acclaimed site where students receive hands-on opportunities and are welcomed as members of our community!
