Title information

Office-based teaching occurs in a fast-paced, complicated environment where the teacher and student are concerned with both educational outcomes and patient care.

This revised and updated edition continues to provide a reliable resource for physicians interested in improving their office-based teaching techniques while maintaining the efficiency of their practices.

Preceptors will learn to:

  • evaluate their current approaches to teaching
  • incorporate new, proven techniques
  • minimize the effect of office-based teaching on productivity and length of day
  • optimize patient encounter time
  • give meaningful feedback and write preceptor evaluations


Concise and practical, this second edition is further enhanced with an online collection of educational tools and resources and an electronic teaching-encounter form for mobile devices.
