I have read with great interest the article by Khalid et al,1 which investigated the impact of peer tutoring when compared to being taught by staff. As a medical student at Imperial College London who has experienced peer tutoring, I would love to share my views on this topic. This study found that most students agreed that peer tutoring was beneficial for clinical teaching and benefitted both the tutor and the tutee.
