The five microskills of clinical teaching were first described
by Neher and colleagues. These skills provide a practical
method for structuring teaching interactions. The skills
may be utilized in one on one encounters with students or small
group teaching settings. The skills allow the clinical
preceptor to take advantage of “teachable moments” that
occur throughout a day of patient care.
