Use of the “One Minute preceptor” method to assess the dermatology undergraduate student’s auditory perception capacity - An open labelled study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background Learning is broadly divided into visual, auditory, reading-writing and kinesthetic groups, and each student varies in their capacity to learn, majority being reading-writing learners. Medical education is mainly imparted via lectures and bedside teaching, which is mostly auditory. Methods This was a prospective open labelled study to assess the capacity of the students to comprehend a topic taught solely by means of lectures. Fifty students undertook the study by listening to a topic for 10 minutes and then answering questions by writing, which was evaluated and graded from 0 to 10 points. Results Only 3 students, 6.8% scored above 7 points, whereas majority were poor or average performers. Conclusion Students learn by a variety of techniques, and the predominant method may vary from person to person, preferably reading and visualizing in the majority. Dermatology being a vast subject, we may have to change our teaching methods to incorporate various innovative techniques.
