A brief study on the usefulness of a method involving problem solving skills to teach pharmacology to undergraduate medical students is presented. This is based on the publication by Upjohn (USA) on patient oriented problem solving (POPS) method of medical education with slight modification of the details of conducting the session. This study involves one session on hypertension. POPS was used as an adjunct to the lecture session. Pretest and post tests were conducted as a method to determine the improvement in knowledge acquired by the student. Preformed questionnaire was administered to all the students asking for their opinions on the usefulness of the POPS system teaching. The feedback from this batch of students suggests that this method is very useful and interesting.
