Abstract : This study was conducted to sensitize and assess the knowledge of final year medical students on “Informed consent”. Study group comprises of final year students of Apollo medical college, Chittoor. A quantitative & qualitative questionnaire was prepared on informed consent, based on “Likert’s scale” & definition by Hon. Supreme court of India and administered as pre-test & post- test after a didactic lecture class of 30 minutes. 85% of students attended the didactic lecture class. Importance of all the components of informed consent were recognised by 50% of students in pre-test and >80% in post- test. Components of definition on informed consent recognition was more on post –test (Except permission and by a patient). Didactic lecture has great impact on student perception. Majority of students failed to recognise that informed consent has to be granted by patient. Students failed to recognise that informed consent has to be obtained before any diagnostic procedures. Highlights that this topic has to be included in curricula of subjects other than Forensic medicine. Emphasis has to be placed on “communication skills”, so that U.G can communicate better with patient in future.
