Teaching is a complex and demanding activity that involves Mastery of content, classroom control and techniques of organization and command of teaching skills. Teachers' continuous engagement in learning, skill acquisition and refinement to practice is essential for meeting student learning needs. Medical education is principally centered on the transmission of medical knowledge and assisting medical students to acquire the necessary skills and attitudes associated with medical practice. Evaluation of teaching is important in the teaching-learning process. The medical profession demands to be increasingly concerned with evaluation of teachers' performance as a part of its accountability. This study was designed to evaluate teaching performance in the department of Pharmacology, Forensic Medicine, Microbiology, Community Medicine and Pathology in Mymensingh Medical College and this descriptive cross sectional study was conducted among 94 students of 5th year MBBS students (session 2011-2012) of Mymensingh Medical College, Bangladesh from January 2016 to June 2016. A semi-structured self-administered questionnaire was used for collection of data. All the respondents provided opinion regarding scholarship of teachers, methods of presentation, communication and interaction, learning, coverage of contents and approachability by a 5 points rating scale. Attained score was variable in the context of different statements and different faculties. Students were also asked to provide suggestions for improvement of teachers' performance in each subject. Remarkable number of the students demanded for deployment of subject-specific teachers in adequate number. A significant number of students called for more practical classes in Pathology, Microbiology and Pharmacology. They also desired for the improvement of teaching quality and student friendly attitude from the teachers. A significant number of students opined that teaching materials and other logistics in the class rooms and even the class rooms were inadequate and need improvement in this regards. Regular conduction of classes by adequate number of teachers having post-graduate degree in the relevant faculty with adequate skill in teaching, student-friendly attitude of the teachers, adequate physical facilities and teaching materials help in improvement of teaching quality.
