Methods: Four topics suitable for integration with Biochemistry and Pharmacology were covered as both lectures and online learning modules among 69 Phase 2 MBBS students after dividing them into two groups. Results and Discussion: The mean±SD of the marks obtained after covering lectures and online modules of the four topics were found to be different and statistically significant- Topic 1 (Gout) lecture 3.91± 1.44;online module 6.35 ± 0.91, Topic 2 (Hypolipidemic drugs) lecture 3.80± 1.32; online module 6.17± 0.71, Topic 3 (Vit D) lecture 4.22± 1.41; online module 7.73± 1.69,Topic 4 (Iron) lecture 4.25± 1.83;online module 7.82± 1.19.In this study we observed that integrated online learning was an efficient method for undergraduate teaching.
