Introduction- Post graduate students during OPD hours, sometimes find it difficult to reach the provisional diagnosis. There is rising tendency to send patients to investigations without utilizing history and clinical findings to reach the diagnosis. Ideal approach- Residents should take careful history, do thorough clinical examination and develop a thought process to utilize these findings to come to a provisional diagnosis. Aim - Use of “One Minute Preceptor” in surgery post graduate residents in surgery OPD. Objectives- The tendency to rush for investigations should change and they should utilize the investigative tools to reinforce their diagnosis rather than getting / seeking readymade diagnosis. Innovation- To achieve this goal, the use of ‘One Minute Preceptor’ was adapted which provides a different approach compared to the traditional teaching. Materials And Methods – 1.Preproject questionnaire 2.Implementation 3.Interval feedback 4. Assessment Results: The use of “One Minute Preceptor’ in Surgery residents in ambulatory setup of Surgery OPD has positively contributed in achieving objectives of developing thought process to reach provisional diagnosis by utilizing history and clinical examination.
