Teaching in Dermatology is not easy especially in COVID situations to MBBS students. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all aspects of normal life. Teaching and learning, at all levels have also been affected, including clinical teaching in medical schools. Direct patient interaction, especially in groups, in out-patient departments or wards, is difficult. To add to this, patients have also reduced visits for nonemergency reasons. Institutes have adapted to the changed circumstances by increasing the use of online learning. Online education has its own limitations, especially in medical education, more so in the context of clinical rotations. Dermatology, being an inherently visual specialty, probably is more amenable to online learning as compared to other specialties. We describe our experience and the student and faculty feedback after an online Dermatology teaching module for undergraduate medical students, which was created in lieu of traditional teaching, due to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. This study puts to find the student’s perceptions and the impact of the programme on the learning of students to be beneficial to the faculty in the future. The primary objective is to evaluate the perception of the students and teachers towards online teaching. The secondary objective is to evaluate the performance of students.
