Student Uncertainties Drive Teaching During Case Presentations: More So With SNAPPS

In a study of a small number of audiotaped presentations by medical students to family medicine preceptors, researchers found that preceptors directly aligned their teaching towards 80% of questions posed during the presentation.  Students posed about 2 questions per presentation.  A small number of students had been trained in the presentation technique known as SNAPPS (Summarize, Narrow, Analyze, Probe, Plan, Select).  These students asked slightly more questions, and more of their questions had to do with diagnostic reasoning.—Laura Willett, MD
