We read with great interest the article by Kazzazi and Bartlett1 regarding embryology teaching methods. While we commend their efforts regarding the condensing of teaching for medical students, we have highlighted the aspects which may be worth considering.
The delivery of lectures including case studies is welcomed. Research has shown that not only student satisfaction but also knowledge gained is superior using an integrated teaching approach.2 While a wholly integrated approach also involves exposure to patients and problem-based learning,3 starting by integrating information in the classroom is a cornerstone to success.
