Supervision in the outpatient context is increasingly in the form of single interactions between students and preceptors creating difficulties for effective feedback. Building on feedback theories focusing on the relational and dialogic aspects of feedback, I explore my use of goal oriented feedback in brief encounters both in the ambulatory setting and on the wards. Using autoethnographic methods to analyze and interpret my feedback interactions, the study demonstrates that goal oriented feedback promotes dialogue, as it requires both preceptor and learner to acknowledge and negotiate learning goals throughout their interaction. Feedback thereby becomes an explicit component of the preceptor-learner relationship, enhancing feedback interactions even in relatively brief encounters.
