Objective To evaluate the teaching effect of academic group-oriented teaching in ophthalmic probation. Design Prospective randomized controlled teaching study. Participants 98 students of clinical medical 8 year program of grade 2012 in Peking University Health Science Center. Methods 48 students were divided into the experimental group and the other 48 students into the control group. Academic group-oriented teaching was applied to the experimental group, and the control group was taught in regular PBL+CBL. The teaching effectiveness was investigated on 3 days, 3 months and 6 months after teaching. Main Outcome Measure Satisfaction degree, determination rate of vocational intention and career planning of students. Results The excellent rate of ophthalmic knowledge test (33.3%) and overall satisfaction of teaching (87.5%) in the experimental group was better than in the control group (8.3% and 33.3%) on 3 days after teaching. Occupational intention determination rate (43.8%), occupational planning determination rate (68.8%) and oral test excellent rate (29.2%) on 3 days after teaching in the experimental group were better than in the control group (16.7%, 43.8%, 8.3%, respectively). However, there was no significant difference in the results on 6 months after teaching. Conclusion Academic group-oriented teaching may can improve the teaching quality rapidly in the early and middle period of ophthalmic practice teaching, and help students make career planning, but the effect in the late teaching is not clear.
