To the Editor: Bedside teaching is an important tool in medical education, highly regarded by students and supported by patients in adult medicine.1,2 Given the resource and practical constraints facing bedside teaching,3 it is important to justify and inform this method in the paediatric setting. No previous Australian study has explored bedside teaching in paediatrics.
