    Dermatology holds significant importance in the curriculum of medical studies, encompassing various aspects of medical practice. Therefore, it is essential for medical graduates to acquire a proficient understanding of dermatological principles. This study endeavors to assess the impact of integrating problem-based learning (PBL) with traditional didactic lectures among final-year medical undergraduates. Methodology: A comparative study was conducted involving 150 final-year M.B.B.S. students who voluntarily participated. Initially, all students received didactic lectures. Subsequently, they were randomly assigned to two groups: Group A and Group B, with 75 students in each.
