ABSTRACT

As the style of healthcare delivery and patient expectations of medical care changes, there is a move toward more patient care and investigation being supplied beyond hospital wards in outpatient and other ambulatory care venues. Arguments are now being made that more undergraduate teaching should be provided in these venues where clinical problems more appropriate for student learning can be seen. But where can such venues be found, how can student learning be supported in these situations and who can help in student teaching beyond the traditional hospital wards?

Keywords: Ambulatory care, Outpatient clinics, Hospital, Teaching, Health education.
