Competing demands, changing environments, evolving medicine, and varying student attributes make teaching in the outpatient clinic setting challenging. The 1-Minute Preceptor Model is a systematic framework for teaching and providing feedback to students in a hectic clinic. After the student presents the patient, the teacher employs the Five Microskills to encourage critical thinking in the student and provide teaching as well as feedback in a short time-frame. By orienting the student to the environment, setting general expectations and huddling prior to clinic, the teacher can more effectively and efficiently employ the 1-Minute Preceptor Model after each student-patient encounter.


1. Identify common challenges to teaching medical students in the outpatient setting.
2. Explain the One-Minute Preceptor/Five Microskills method of teaching and providing feedback to medical students.
3. Discuss tips for effectively implementing this method of teaching and providing feedback.
