Abstract

Teaching in pharmacology is predominantly lecture based. While practical sessions do include problem solving and case scenarios the teaching methodologies are inadequate in empowering the students to handle real life scenarios which require integration of theory and practice, application of knowledge and skills to find a viable solution to a defined problem. Use of eLearning in such situations is still in its infancy in Indian medical colleges and thus provides a unique opportunity to improve the existing teaching and learning methods. This review will look into studies describing various forms of eLearning methodologies adopted for teaching pharmacology to health professionals as well as those which have tried to assess the effect of eLearning approach adopted in teaching pharmacology across the globe.
