The learning which happens in the case of an adult learner, including the medical students occurs in a wide variety of ways and is influenced by multiple factors. Experiential learning, as the name suggests, refers to the learning process that occurs through experience, and can be better understood as the learning via reflection on doing. The basic concept of experiential learning is that it facilitates learning in terms of a direct experience of an individual student, which may occur within or beyond the classroom settings. An undergraduate medical student can get benefited from experiential learning right from the early stages of training, upon exposure to clinical settings, during the internship, and even in their period of residency. In conclusion, experiential learning is an innovative form of learning that advocates for the acquisition of knowledge, improvement in interpersonal or communication skills through experience. The best part is that it helps in the gradual progression of the student right from the early stages of their learning till the period of residency and even after.
