Abstract

Various teaching-learning methods are used in imparting medical education. Case Based Learning (CBL) is one of the
teaching-learning methods in which clinical cases are used for teaching. It was first used by Dr James Smith, pathologist,
in 1912 in Edinburg, wherein the students correlated the clinical records of patients with the post mortem findings. The
use of CBL in teaching medical students was extensively searched in PubMed search engine. Full text articles related to
CBL studies conducted in medical colleges were included. 6 relevant articles were selected and a critical analysis was
done. Most of the studies compare CBL with didactic lecture and found to be more effective. These studies are limited to
one college and sample size is small. CBL correlates the theory with practice. The students learn many skills like critical
thinking, higher order thinking, self-directed learning and working in a team. Thus, the learner will become a successful
Indian Medical Graduate (IMG).
