There is an air amongst those schools that have adopted this model of clinical education that we have escaped the outdated and ineffective bounds of specialty block rotations to a more educationally satisfying, liberating and productive way of training physicians. The small but growing literature on this model identifies the benefits of this model as enabling: greater learner involvement in the continuity of patient care; the ability to act as patient advocates; greater continuity of supervision; a more structured progression of learning; extended opportunities to learn by taking on a physician’s role; heightened learner confidence, satisfaction, engagement, and performance; and greater opportunities for both independent and collaborative practice (Hauer et al. 2009; Norris et al. 2009; Couper et al. 2011; Hauer et al. 2012; Hi
