Abstract

The ideal way to improve the competence level of medical students is via teaching them and giving adequate exposure to the various clinical and ethical scenarios and supporting the same with reflection and constructive feedback.[1,2] In the current era of medical education, where a teacher finds it difficult to maintain equilibrium between their primary role of teaching and patient care, there is a definite scope and adequate evidence which calls for the use of students as peer educators for the mutual benefit of both the learners and the student teacher.[1,3] A near-peer teacher refers to those students who are senior to other trainees, nevertheless play an active role in teaching the junior students regardless of the fact that they are still not qualified content expert.[1-4]
