Introduction: Anesthesiology is a unique specialty in medical practice. Anesthesiologists administer the most potent drugs and observe the results themselves. They have to monitor the patients' lives from second to second. So, this study was conducted to evaluate the in vogue teaching curriculum of anesthesiology during MBBS. Material and methods: A relevant and simple questionnaire was used. The feedback form collected from the non practicing and practicing doctors as well as interns and house staff. Results: Only 57.1% doctors remembered the teachings during MBBS while 42.95% not. Discussion: Although the specialty of anaesthesiology and critical care is not given its due credit at undergraduate medical level. Keeping in mind this feedback we received, it is probably for the better that now as per the new guidelines, undergraduate students are posted in the specialty of anaesthesiology and critical care for a longer period.
