Integrated teaching in the field of medical education has been looked upon as the key approach to deliver complex information to the medical students in a relatively easier manner. In order to address the existing lacunae in the traditional curriculum with regard to integrated teaching, specific provisions in terms of various levels, topics and nature of integration, has been clearly specified in the recently implemented competency-based curriculum for undergraduate students. The successful implementation of the integrated teaching program across all the phases will essentially require support from all the concerned stakeholders, especially the management, administration, curriculum committee, medical education unit, alignment & integration teams, and faculty members. Considering that implementation of integrated teaching needs to be done within the available human resources, it becomes quite obvious that we have to focus towards capacity building. In conclusion, the process of implementation of integrated teaching in any of the medical colleges across India is a challenging task. However, the overall process can be simplified and made effective through active faculty involvement and support from the administration.
