Abstract
Background: Traditional teaching method has been universally accepted and adopted in almost all medical colleges in India. As due to the coronavirus disease-19 pandemic situation, we have conducted e-learning classes for theory and practical for the first time in our medical college, and we have prepared this study to understand student preferences in medical education.

Aim and Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the preference of students between online teaching and traditional classroom teaching.

Materials and Methods: This study was conducted in 250 1st-year MBBS students of Shri M. P. Shah Government Medical College, Jamnagar, after getting approval from the Institutional Ethical Committee. A pre-structured questionnaire-based study was conducted through Google form after obtaining written consent from the students. We have included 24 questions with multiple choice answers.

Results: In our study, we found that 57% medical students prefer traditional teaching methods over e-learning classes, and 88% of students prefer traditional teaching method than e-learning for practical classes.

Conclusion: In our study, we found that medical students prefer traditional teaching for theory and practical classes. The student also prefers online teaching materials, along with traditional teaching methods. For better understanding and learning, medical students prefer that traditional classroom teaching should be followed by online video lectures that can be easily accessed by students at their convenient time.

Key words: Traditional Teaching Methods; E-learning; Coronavirus Disease-19; Medical Students
