To facilitate experiential learning with assistance from peers, fourteen consented first year AKUH MBBS students submitted an online application along with a written paragraph. Percentage in previous teaching module was also obtained. A training workshop was organized for all the consented students where after pretest and initial orientation, they were divided into two groups; A and B. Facilitators taught concepts of Physiology practical to PLs of Group A and of Pharmacology practical to PLs of Group B respectively. Then PLs of Group A taught PLs of Group B and vice versa with shuffling of students. Comprehension of concept was evaluated by a significant difference (p<0.05) in the pre and posttest results. Nine (64%) students labeled overall assessment of activity as excellent. Ten students were selected on the basis of paragraph writing, end of activity questionnaire and gain in knowledge as a result of comparison of pre and posttest results.
