Teaching Perception Inventory®
The inventory measures
comfort with clinical teaching by comparing perceptions of your "ideal
clinical teacher" and your feelings about yourself as a clinical
teacher. Studies have suggested that taking the CTPI will help you
improve your teaching skills.
The CTPI is a 28-item
Q-sort instrument which takes 5-10 minutes. Respondents place
each of 28 single-word descriptors/items along a seven-point continuum
ranging from "least like" to "most like." When you have finished,
you will immediately receive an individual explanation of your scores,
with helpful links and resources to help you achieve your goals as a
will be anonymously recorded so that we can advance the state of
knowledge about residents as teachers; your individual answers will not
be connected with your name. This project is run by medical faculty who
will guard the confidentiality of your name and email address.
Using CTPI data from residents in different specialties across the
country, we are developing new curricula to help residents improve
their teaching skills while enjoying teaching. Some of these curricula
are available on our Resources Page. Meanwhile, explore and enjoy
our Web site in progress!
