Objectives : A questionnaire based analytical study was done to know the perceptions and suggestions of 2nd professional medical students about various aspects of their teaching and use them for improvement. Material & Methods : Study was conducted on 2nd professional students (n=150) using a structured validated questionnaire after approval from the Institutional Ethical Committee. Results : Students found pharmacology and pathology most relevant but difficult subjects. They found it difficult to synchronize and integrate the different subjects. They found tutorials and group discussions more useful than lectures and seminars and suggested to cut short the duration of the lecture. They advocated the judicious use of power point along with the conventional method of teaching. They wanted some multiple choice questions to be included in the tests and in the final exams. They wanted some sessions on career counseling and wished the effective implementation of the mentoring system. Conclusion: The suggestions obtained from the students, if addressed effectively, can improve their learning and produce better health care professionals.
