AMU ward rounds can be busy, and many consultants feel they are 'too busy to teach'. Yet the AMU is a rich learning environment. If we take the starting point that teaching is not the same as learning, how can consultants facilitate learning during a busy AMU ward round? Opportunistic teaching requires some planning but can easily be incorporated in to the business of the working day. Good educational practice requires some knowledge however. This article aims to give physicians some understanding and tips on teaching on the AMU ward round.
