Teaching Strategies for Preceptors

Learn about 2 important resources for becoming a more effective preceptor. These tools will help you brush up on your teaching skills and provide new ones.

The One-Minute Preceptor

The One-Minute Preceptor is a clinical teaching tool that has been validated in numerous studies. It's easy to learn and implement. The 5 skills provide a framework for approaching the needs of your student and help teach them while staying efficient and on-time in a busy clinic or intrapartum day. These skills are:

  • Student presents the case and commits to the diagnosis
  • Preceptor probes for supporting evidence—the student’s rationale for the diagnosis
  • Preceptor teaches on a single point and/or reinforces a general rule
  • Tell them what they did right
  • Correct any mistakes
