We read with great interest the article by Pettit et al1 on the implementation of flipped learning. We wish to offer our perspective as medical students. The study concluded that a combination of lecture-based teaching accompanied with flipped learning activities appealed to most students. We find this response unsurprising. Pettit et al’s1 article documents the reason – the need for a variation in teaching styles for different themes by millennial learners of the modern student community.
