Vicarious experiences are an educational approach that, when used effectively, can harness the benefits of learning with and from others.

With key design strategies including careful selection of people and tasks to observe, prompting, discourse, and collaboration, this faculty development paper outlines how health professions educators can capture the benefits of vicarious experiences in, and out of, the traditional classroom setting.
