Feedback has been regarded as one of the most essential and integral components of medical education and other training programs. It aids the students to optimize their potential during different stages of training by giving them an insight about their strengths and also the areas which requires improvement. It is important to understand that giving feedback has to be a two-way communication, wherein the involved stakeholders discuss together and eventually develop an action plan for expediting the professional growth. In the current era of medical education, the feedback is actually considered as not only the process of identifying faults, but also the identification of the positive attributes of the students. In conclusion, feedback in medical education plays a defining role in shaping the career of a medical student and also enriches the curriculum by periodic reforms. The need of the hour is to encourage feedback from all stakeholders regarding different aspects of teaching-learning and take remedial measures for the improvement.
