Both Dr. DuBeau and Dr. Pasquale referenced Neher’s “One-Minute Preceptor” model in their respective Teaching and Leadership lectures at CRIT 2012. The model is a solid teaching strategy and is cited frequently in the professional literature. The UMMS Resident as Teacher online module further explains the technique and offers exercises for honing the skills associated with the model. An extensive bibliography and reflective formative test is included as well.
