Bedside teaching, considered as the core teaching strategy during the clinical years of a medical student, is briefly outlined as a distinct mode of small group teaching that takes place in the presence of patients. Contrary to the popular opinion, it is not only taken place in a hospital setting but also in any situation in the presence of a patient, including long-term care facility and office setting. The key characteristics of bedside teaching are augmentation of the learner's experience and improvement of patient care. Further, it is important to acknowledge the fact that it is a process through which learners acquire the skills of communication that improve patient's compliance and overall contentment, which is beneficial to a great degree in medical colleges. Notwithstanding the plentiful advantages of bedside teaching highlighted in the preceding subsection, various obstacles that are predominantly responsible for the decline in bedside teaching have been cited. It is apparent that this decline presents a potential obstacle to the evolution of current and future generations of doctors. Hence, it is crucial for medical schools to give due importance to start moving teaching from the classrooms and conference halls to the patient's bedside.
