How to Remediate Learners on a Short Clinical Rotation: Getting the Learner Back on Track

Yet remediation is necessary to help our learners succeed. This chapter presents strategies to recognize when there is a need for remediation, diagnose the type of learner deficit, and build an appropriate action plan.
