Teaching adolescent medicine in the office setting.


Despite recent educational improvements in adolescent medicine, challenges remain. Residents in pediatrics are required to have a 1-month block rotation in adolescent medicine, and residents in family medicine and internal medicine are strongly encouraged to receive training in adolescent health issues. Meeting the educational challenges for all of these residents can be a daunting task but can be accomplished with proper curricular development, utilization of learner-centered materials, and effective planning of the clinical education program. A significant amount of adolescent teaching occurs in the ambulatory setting. Clinical preceptors should be familiar with teaching approaches such as the 1-minute preceptor and should regularly reflect on their own teaching styles and skills. Proper learner feedback is crucial to any clinical teaching endeavor.
