Most clinical teaching takes place in the context of busy clinical practice where time is at a premium. At some point during our teaching we have felt dissatisfaction with our clinical teaching. One minute preceptor (OMP) model is easy to impart clinical reasoning skills to postgraduate students. This model focuses on the last one minute, which is crucial from the learning point of view and hence its name.
