Precision Teaching (PT) is a behaviour analytic procedure that focuses on building fluent skills in a variety of learning contexts, including individuals with specific learning difficulties or adult learners.  PT uses frequent but brief timed measures of student performance on specific learning points with the aim of improving speed and accuracy sufficient to ensure retention and endurance of information. There is potential that PT may offer new approaches to learning in a health professional context. This seminar aims to provide an overview of PT in health profession education and highlight case examples of applications in learning environments.
