Presenter(s): Matt Neal, MD and Krista Hoffmann-Longtin, PhD
Audience: Faculty, Staff, and Learners


SNAPPS is a learner-centered teaching approach to clinical education consisting of six steps. In learner-centered education, the learner takes an active role in their educational encounter by discussing the patient encounter beyond the facts, verbalizing their clinical reasoning, asking questions, and engaging in follow-up learning pertinent to the educational encounter. The preceptor takes on the role of a facilitator by promoting critical thinking, empowering the learner to have an active role in their education, and serving as a knowledge ‘presenter’ rather than a knowledge ‘source.’
