The 5-minute bedside moment

Finding time to effectively teach at the bedside can be a challenge in the modern hospital environment. Attendings, residents, and students are all pulled in different directions, and the ability to maintain focus during a teaching session is limited. The Five Minute Moment (5M2) is a technique pioneered by the Stanford Medicine 25, which enables bedside educators to provide important information about physical exam techniques and findings in a memorable and engaging way. 5M2’s can be five minute sessions or serve as building blocks for longer bedside encounters depending on the needs of the instructor and learners.
