In the current era, it is a great challenge for the teachers to identify effective ways to aid undergraduate medical students to accomplish the learning outcomes successfully. In order to achieve this as well as assist an Indian Medical Graduate to acquire five basic roles, the use of case-based learning (CBL) is an effective approach, as it not only imparts subject content but also engages the students in real-life case scenarios. Further, CBL should be considered as a supplementary tool in our conventional teaching; otherwise, it will not deliver the desired outcomes. To conclude, CBL is an effective method of teaching–learning and the prospects of incorporating the same within the curriculum to make the learning more simplified and authentic should be explored by medical colleges in India.
