Abstract

Medical colleges in India follow a curriculum with a large body of knowledge pertaining to basic sciences and clinical disciplines. Use of innovative techniques in teaching has certain advantages which include increasing teacher and learner enthusiasm and improving participation of the students. We combined the use of pre-/post-test in vertical integrated teaching to increase the effectiveness of the teaching process. An innovative vertical integrated teaching session was carried out for final MBBS students. A total of 35 students participated. A pre-test questionnaire was given to all the students to identify basic knowledge about the subject (HIV). Then the faculty conducted sessions on HIV, followed by a post-test questionnaire. This study revealed that students have improved their knowledge by the new teaching-learning method. The students were enthusiastic towards the new teaching-learning method. The faculty showed enthusiasm towards this new approach but were of the opinion that this method could be applicable only to selected topics. The teachers agreed that immediate feedback can be obtained from the students regarding acquisition of knowledge.
