The activity was conducted at Histology lab during the anatomy dissection hour between 9.45AM to 10.15 AM.39 students were divided into 5 small groups. A poster containing the case history and clinically oriented questions were pasted on the board. The same was provided to the students for group discussion for 10minutes.Later each group was invited to answer one question. After that, other groups were allowed to provide additional points on that question. This session went for 20 minutes. The faculty acted as a facilitator for this activity. The students were instructed to read the femoral triangle and femoral canal from their text book once again for better understanding of the anatomical information after attending the flip class session. Students understood the need of anatomical knowledge for understanding the clinical diagnosis and treatment of diseases. This flip class session made them to realize that understanding the concepts and their application is more important than mere memorizing of anatomical facts. When they were asked to answer clinically oriented questions, they understood how to correlate the knowledge of basic sciences with a clinical scenario. Overall student response was good and encouraging.
