To investigate the effect of video feedback teaching method on skilling training for physical examination of abdomen in the medical students. A small class, 50 students of clinical medicine specialty in medical college in China Three Gorges University, was randomly selected and video feedback teaching method was used for replacing the traditional teaching method. Each student received a questionnaire survey 2 weeks after the skill experimental class. The student accepted video feedback teaching method to a large extent and thought that video feedback teaching method can raise the student’s interest, enable students to gain more. There is more advantage in raising the student’s study efficiency, aggressive and independence than traditional teaching method. However, video feedback teaching method requires the students to spend more extra-curricular time for the skill training. The video feedback teaching method is an applicable teaching method for medical students’ clinical skills training. This method can more enhance the students’ motivation and enthusiasm and more improve training efficiency compared with the traditional teaching method.
