Background: Orthopaedic teaching at Postgraduate level is more procedure oriented and due to time and workload constraints, teaching of clinical reasoning skills somehow gets neglected. One Minute Preceptor (OMP) is a learner oriented micro skill method of teaching for improving learning at Postgraduate level. So this study was proposed to introduce OMP as a teaching learning method for Postgraduate in Orthopaedic.
Methodology: This interventional educational study was conducted at the Department of Orthopaedics, PGIMS Rohtak after obtaining institutional ethical clearance. After sensitization of students and faculty members, 6 OMP sessions per student were conducted. Feedback was taken at the end by students as well as faculty members. The question format included both open?ended and close?ended questions. Rating was done on a five?point Likert scale
Results: 95.8% (n=23) Postgraduate students found OMP as an effective tool in learning clinical skills while 83% students (n=20) felt confidentin clinical skills after using OMP. Similarly, all faculty members perceived that OMP improved confidencein assessing clinical knowledge of residents as well as helped them to focus on students’ weak areas.
Conclusion: In busy clinical settings, OMP is feasible and effectiveteaching learning method and induces a significan improvement in clinical skills of postgraduate student
