The following essay, drawn from the journals and work notebook of a family medicine resident and a visiting clinical mentor, chronicles their work together in an Advanced Clinical Mentoring program. This program included afternoons of direct clinical observation immediately followed by feedback sessions. In addition to addressing specific professional issues, such as time management, limiting patient encounters, agenda matching, and the One-Minute Preceptor model, the authors developed personally as they opened themselves to learning and growing as a clinician and a teacher.
