Teaching is considered an art but training is necessary to acquire the skills. Medical teaching starts even when one is pursuing post-graduation. The department of Medical Education organizes a workshop in teaching methods for post graduates (PG) every year.

It is a one and half day workshop. It includes sessions on domains of learning, creating specific learning objectives, lesson planning, use of media, teaching-learning methods including demonstration/practicals, bedside teaching and Microteaching. Each session is followed by a group activity where the participants apply what is discussed in the session and present it to the group. Skills necessary for teaching theory (lectures, tutorials etc.) as well as practicals (bedside teaching, demonstration etc.) are discussed. Also, the participants have one day to prepare for the microteaching session. They are divided into groups of 5 participants each and one faculty is in-charge of the group. Each participant presents a topic to the small group and receives feed-back from the peers and the faculty. This gives an opportunity to the PG to learn the skills in a non-threatening environment.

The aim of PG MET is to incorporate medical education as part of regular PG curriculum.
