    This article describes levels of participation of students in contacts with real patients and how teachers can accelerate progression by creating conditions for students to participate at higher levels. Another role of clinical teachers is to open up opportunities for participation. Practical and emotional learning are mutually reinforcing, and reinforce the ability of students to participate.
