To apply Flipped classroom combined with case-based learning(CBL) in resident training of endodontics, in order to improve training efficiency.


Fifty-one residents from China Medical University, School of Stomatology were randomly divided into 2 groups, twenty-six students in the experimental group were trained with Flipped classroom combined with CBL, the other twenty-five students in the control group were trained with traditional teaching method. At the end of the course, exams and questionnaires were conducted to evaluate the training quality of two different methods. The exams consisted of didactic and operational assessment. The data were analyzed with SPSS 13.0 software package.


The results of didactic exam and comprehensive evaluation indicated that experimental group was significantly higher than the control group(P<0.05). The results of questionnaires indicated that residents showed much more satisfied with Flipped classroom combined with CBL (P<0.05).However, there was no significant difference in operational assessment(P>0.05).


Compared with traditional teaching method, Flipped classroom combined with CBL can achieve better training effect, which is worthy of further application in dental resident training.
