We read with great interest the study by Kazzazi and Bartlett,1 which explores a potential method for teaching embryology to medical students. This consisted of a 2-h peerteaching session, with an emphasis on the clinical aspects of this subject. As the modern medical curriculum often struggles to include adequate teaching of embryology, this study by Kazzazi and Bartlett1 is of particular relevance. Indeed, findings by Hamilton and Carachi2 also convey medical student dissatisfaction with embryology teaching.
