Backgroud & objective: Teaching assumes a viable part in the effectiveness of the instructive framework. This examination was led to contrast instructing gynecology and barrenness courses and both talk and friend techniques.

Materials and Methods: A semi trial study was planned at the maternity care division of the Yasuj University of Medical Sciences. An aggregate of 32 maternity care understudies were partaken in the investigation. During the initial eight meetings, half of the course content were educated as same-level or same class equivalent status peer instructing. The last eight meetings of the course were instructed by address. Toward the finish of every meeting understudies were given a post-test, just as last test of the year after fulfillment of each instructing method. To include understudies in the showing cycle, they were partitioned into little gatherings (6 gatherings) and each gathering took an interest in showing substance of one meeting. Individuals in each gathering were needed to utilize different dynamic strategies to educate, in view of their advantage and suppositions. Toward the finish of tests, every understudy was approached to finish a poll surveying understudies' discernment about instructing strategies.

Result: The normal mid-term test score for peer educating (34.5 ± 5.5) was altogether (P<0.001) higher than last test of the year for address instructing (30.4 ± 5.8), just as normal post-test score for peer instructing was essentially (P<0.001) higher than post-test score for the talk technique (7.2 ± 1.5 versus 5.8 ± 1.6). The normal in general understudies' observation score for the companion encouraging strategy was fundamentally (P<0.001) higher than the relating score for the talk technique (86.8 ±11.5 versus 74.1±12.4). Generally speaking, 56% of understudies picked the companion instructing strategy contrasted with 22% for the talk technique while 22% discovered the two decisions were the same.

Determination: Peer instruction as an integral strategy in showing hypothetical courses alongside the conventional talk technique is by all accounts fitting.
