Abstract
Objective- To get feedback from second MBBS medical students regarding the teaching methodology and evaluation methods in Pharmacology.
Materials and Methods- 107 second MBBS medical students selected randomly from all the second MBBS medical students who were studying at government medical college, Surat. They were approached with a prevalidated questionnaire containing 25 questions. Suggestions were also asked regarding the quality of good pharmacology teachers and modification in pharmacology teaching methods.
Statistics- Descriptive statistics was used and results were expressed as percentage.
Results- Most of the students mentioned CVS(22.55%) as most interesting topic in pharmacology. 54.72% students mentioned interactive classes with strict bilateral communication as most interesting method of teaching pharmacology. Most of the students (42.53%) favoured case study and treatment discussion. 37.36% students mentioned they study pharmacology because of regular tests and vivas. Students found tutorials, problem based learning and MCQ pattern of evaluation method is more useful than terminal and prelim exam for preparing university exams. Students found prescription writing and criticism of prescription more useful and interesting practical in pharmacology.
Conclusion- There is a need of more clinical orientation to the pharmacology teaching at undergraduate level.

Key words: Second MBBS medical student, Pharmacology, Feedback, Teaching Methodology
