Abstract
Background: Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are important cause of morbidity and mortality. ADR reporting will help to identify and prevent ADR. However, lack of awareness and sensitization make it a difficult task. There is under reporting of ADR.

Aims and Objectives: In our study, we tried to determine the practice, knowledge, attitude of ADR reporting in undergraduates, house surgeons, and post-graduates of our institute.

Materials and Methods: It is a questionnaire-based study, a cross-sectional study. Questions are prepared, validated, and peer reviewed by the expert faculty of our institute. Questionnaire directly given to the candidate and taken back after 20 min. Statistical analyses are done using MS Excel sheet and SPSS 16, and mean values are tabulated and graphical representation done.

Results: All are having good attitude and strongly believe that proper ADR reporting is very important and it improves the quality of health services. Knowledge levels are almost equal. Practicing skills were good in undergraduates.

Conclusion: Due to implementation of practical exercise of recognize and report ADR for undergraduates as a part of CBME curriculum, we have seen a better practicing skills in undergraduates compared to house surgeons and post-graduates. Workshops and CMEs have to be conducted to improve sensitization.

Key words: Adverse Drug Reaction; Adverse Drug Reaction Reporting; Undergraduates; Questionnaire
