Abstract

ABSTRACT
Objective: The present study was designed with an aim to investigate 1st-year medical students’ psychological
well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic, with online education format, and its influence on academic
motivation.
Methods: A observational cross sectional study was conducted at Government Medical College and Hospital,
Mysore, India. The participants were asked to complete a pre-tested and pre-designed questionnaire. A Google
questionnaire was developed. A pilot test was given to 10 participants to test the validity of Google questionnaire.
Then the Google questionnaire was mailed to the students and results were analysed.
Results: A total of 90 students answered the questionnaire. Students were generally satisfied with the course
(83.3%) and with technical aspects of online lectures, the positive feedback was from 62% to maximum of 75%.
But they also pointed out that the weaknesses of online learning are the lack of interaction among students and
difficulty in concentrating during online lectures.
Conclusion: The inevitable transformation of medical education caused by CoVID-19 is still ongoing. E-learning
provided us the needed mode to continue delivering the course in the need of the hour. However, hybrid model
combining both modalities can achieve better results.
