The present system of teaching urology to M.S. General Surgery postgraduates is associated with certain drawback: (1) What these students are expected to learn in urology is not clearly defined, (2) Their actual competence in performing even a common urological emergency operation is not tested systematically, (3) Formative test which reinforce the learning of high achievers and which serve as a basis for the corrective prescriptions given to individual students are not used to improve learning. Application of the concept of mastery learning will make learning more efficient than conventional approaches, will enable students learn more material in less time and will produce markedly greater student interest in the subject learned than the conventional methods.
