Abstract

Background: The purpose of imparting knowledge in medical education should be well defined to give the maximum benefit to the students. This can achieve by identifying the ways in which students can learn best.

 

Objective: This study focuses on the identification of preferred learning style (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) among the second professional MBBS students

 

Methods: Barsch questionnaire was administered to assess the predominant learning style among the second professional MBBS students at SSR Medical College.

 

Results: A total of 156 students participated. The majority (78.2%) of the students had visual preference, followed by auditory (14.7%) and then kinaesthetic (7.05%). Both males and females showed the same preference.

 

Conclusion: Our study highlights that visual learning is predominant learning style. Thus, the identification of preferred learning style can be helpful to the students in retaining the knowledge in better way.
