AUTHOR(S): Dr. Triveni Kale, Dr. Shruti Lendey and Dr. Varsha Ranmare
Traditional lectures and power point presentations are routinely employed as a means of transmitting knowledge and skills are learnt by demonstration of procedure to small groups. ECE is a teaching learning methodology, which fosters exposure of the medical students to the patients as early as the first year of medical college.
Aim and objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of ECE on the surgical performance of Ist year postgraduate students in the department of periodontics.
Material and method: The knowledge and skills of Ist year MDS students trained using conventional didactic lectures compared with those trained with a combination of didactic lectures and ECE module. Using the OSPE stations, ECE module is better understood, retained and later practically applied.
Conclusion: If learned in a clinically significant set up ECE helps to improve understanding, develop problem solving skills and increases interaction
