Abstract

Clinical teaching in medicine plays an important role in the making of a competent and skilled health care professional. It is a fact that owing to the recent rise in the burden on the health system because of an augmented rise in the number of patients visiting hospitals, including tertiary medical colleges, the time for clinical teaching has significantly reduced. However, acknowledging the scope of clinical teaching in the making of a competent health care professional, the need of the hour is that the medical colleges and the individual departments should give immense attention towards delivering high-quality teaching. As the teachers remain the most important stakeholder in effective clinical teaching, they should be aware about the existing challenges and the ways to address them. In conclusion, clinical teaching needs to be improved and streamlined in all the medical institutions. The major responsibility of effective delivery of clinical teaching lies with the medical teachers and it is high time that they understand the prevailing challenges and work with an aim to overcome them and eventually enhance the effectiveness of teaching.
