A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess the utility of online teaching for general surgery postgraduate residents at the end of 1 month of online teaching during the COVID-19 lockdown. A questionnaire related to different aspects of online teaching was developed on a 5-point Likert scale from "strongly agree" to "strongly disagree". Following a pilot study, the questionnaire was shared among surgery residents, and response collection was done. The residents who did not attend at least 90% of scheduled classes were excluded. A total of 55 resident doctors without prior experience of online teaching program were enrolled in the study. All the participants responded to all questions and submitted their responses within stipulated time. On the basis of validity testing, questions 1 and 2 were found invalid and hence deleted. The median value for the total cohort was 4 indicating that majority of residents gave affirmative response. On segregating the result with the year of residency program, similar results were found in the 1st year and 2nd year group; however, the 3rd year group showed a median of 3, thus eliciting that only 50% of 3rd year residents liked online teaching. From the present study, it can be concluded that the online teaching is a feasible alternative to the physical class among surgical postgraduates. The questionnaire utilized in the present study can be used for assessing similar online teaching protocols.
