Acknowledging the complexity of medicine and the pressure on medical students in the current era, it is the need of the hour to ensure that they are taught using effective teaching-learning strategies. Team teaching refers to the approach wherein two or more qualified teachers join their hands together with an aim to provide knowledge to the students. The adoption of team teaching offers enormous benefits to the medical students, in terms of a broader range of experience, different teaching styles, views, and better problem-solving via the development of critical thinking skills. To conclude, the adoption of team teaching can prove to be an effective learning experience for the teachers and the students. However, to maximize the outcome, a significant amount of planning and coordination is required among the team members and thus all the medical colleges should aim to implement within their settings for the benefit of the medical students.
