A proper training in bioethics is very essential especially for medical students nursing and other paramedical staff. There are various teaching methodologies like a black board (lecturing), power point presentations, case discussions, group discussions and film/movie clipping related to bioethics .Each of the teaching methodology is effective in a particular group. Materials and methods: Four different teaching methodologies were used to teach bioethics in four different categories namely MBBS students, doctors/interns, nurses and lab technicians. All were exposed to all types of teaching methodology. An evaluation was done by performance based and choice based evaluation system. Results: Case discussion was most popular choice of MBBS students and Doctors/Interns. Among nurses and lab technician’s film discussion was best in terms of performance and choice. Conclusion: Bioethics covers more about abstract issues related to the health discussion on this topic help in better understanding and clarification.
