A prospective qualitative study was conducted involving 64 participants through purposive sampling. After ethical clearance students were briefed about integrated teaching and project. Topic based interactive vertically integrated module was prepared by involving faculty of Microbiology, Pathology, Preventive and Social Medicine, Pulmonary medicine and general Medicine. Interactive teaching learning methods like picture prompt, interactive video, group test and MCQ were included in the module. Pre validated questionnaire was used to obtain feedback from students which included closed ended (on likert scale) and few open ended questions. Data from questionnaire was compiled and analysed. 60.94% students strongly agreed that integrated teaching linked basic sciences and clinical subjects. Among interactive teaching learning methods, interactive videos helped to a greater extent followed by MCQ, picture prompt and group test. 37.50% students expressed there was improvement in overall knowledge related to topic due to integration. 37.50% participants wanted repetition of integrated teaching once in a month.
