Teachers as Clinicians: Inadequacies in Teacher Education
David W. CNAN（陳維鄂）
An analogy has been drawn between the medical and the educational scenes, focusing on the clinical role that teachers cannot avoid. Yet it is argued that physicians are poorly prepared in medical education and teachers are not prepared at all in teacher education regarding caring and compassionate practice crucial to the clinical endeavor. A re-examination of the definition of the clinical role leads to the conclusion that the separation of remediation and prevention is illusory, especially when both dealing with troubled students and school-based prevention programs are considered as classroom realities for teachers.
