Objective: We aimed to compare the success between the video-based leraning and text-based learning, among fourth class medical school students.

Material and methods: The proposed study is a single center, randomized controlled clinical tiral, which of all test subjects were selected among from medical school students. A cross-sectional study was designed to assess the learning ability of the medical students, by interpretation and evaluation of the data from video- and text-based materials, presented in the subject of a wound healing. The participants were divided into two groups. Group 1 (n=100) consisted of students who got video-assisted lecture, and Group 2 (n=100) who got lecture from a textbook. Groups were evaluated according to their correct response rates.

Results: The video-based learning increased the correct response rates by 25 fold for more than five questions (OR: 25, p=0.0001), and increased the correct response rates by 10 fold for more than seven questions (OR: 10, p=0.0001).

Conclusions: In this study, video-based learning was found more successful than the text-based learning, as a traning method.
