Purpose: The purpose of this article is to review the one-minute preceptor and SNAPPS clinical teaching methods and evaluate their effect on development of clinical reasoning skills in physician assistant students.
Method: A PubMed literature search was conducted with search terms one-minute preceptor, SNAPPS, clinical teaching strategies, physician assistant education. Twelve pertinent articles were retrieved and served as the basis for this clinical review.
Results: Research indicated a positive correlation between implementation of the one-minute preceptor and SNAPPS models and development of student clinical reasoning.
Conclusion: Implementing the one-minute preceptor model and SNAPPS positively affects PA student learning, retention, and critical reasoning. Additional benefits include time savings for preceptors as they balance patient care demands. Both methods are easily implemented and demonstrate positive outcomes for students. The one-minute preceptor and SNAPPS are effective strategies that provide an effective and efficient learning environment for the student.
Keywords: one-minute preceptor, SNAPPS, clinical teaching strategies, physician assistant education.
