Global practices in health sectors envisioned maternal mortality as an indicator of the health standard of the nation. World Health Organization rests its goal on ‘Eight Millennium Development’ over the globe by means of MDG 5 is to improve the maternal health. The aim of the study is to upgrade teaching and learning method to optimise acquisition of knowledge in undergraduate students to meet the effectiveness of obstetric emergencies. We evaluated changes in knowledge using a single best answers questionnaire. The study 115 stage-5 students from 2019-2020 academic years were selected, and they were divided into 5 small groups with monthly rotation to attend the workshop. There are 23-24 students in each rotation. The assessment of knowledge of obstetrics emergencies carried out by using the SBA test before and after the workshop conducted by means of teaching and learning method.
