In the Classroom

Back to Bedside With 1-Minute Preceptor on Assessment and Feedback

The importance of bedside teaching in medical education has been recognized for more than a century. Unfortunately, with obligations of documentation, clinical revenue generation, and other time factors, the frequency and consistency of bedside teaching have decreased significantly. New learners who are not exposed to bedside teaching will be limited in how effectively they will be able to provide this mode of teaching to their learners. We must break this vicious cycle.

In this webinar, Jean M. Elwing, MD, FCCP, and Bhavin Dalal, MD, FCCP, discuss the importance of bedside teaching and show you a few ways by which you can resume bedside teaching quickly and effectively. The panelists share the following information to facilitate increased teaching at the bedside:

  • Increase awareness of unique benefits of bedside teaching for the development of clinical, social, and leadership skills.
  • Review opportunities for real-time feedback that bedside teaching affords.
  • Discuss components of effective feedback.
  • Recognize pitfalls that may lead to harmful feedback.
