Overview: It is time for psychiatry to embrace the burgeoning promise of modern research. To do so, we need to develop easily accessible resources that will allow neuroscience informed teaching and learning to occur in clinical settings. The present module was designed to address this need. It is loosely modeled on the idea of the one minute preceptor – i.e. teaching that can be done in the moment, with minimal preparation, and is directly linked to a clinical case. In order to allay potential faculty and resident discomfort with neuroscience content, the sessions are designed as self-contained, collaborative learning exercises (rather than following a traditional, hierarchical organization).
