Resumo Purpose: the current model of undergraduate medical education is under debate since knowledge retention and student interest seem to be decreasing. To clarify this situation we developed and evaluated a computer aided learning program using a multimedia presentation about prostate cancer for undergraduate teaching in urology.Materials and Methods: A total of 60 medical students from years 2 and 3 were divided into group 1-31 who used the multimedia program and group 2-29 who attended a standard lecture on the same subject. At the end the level of knowledge acquisition for the 2 groups was evaluated by a multiple choice test. Group 1 students also answered a questionnaire about subjective feelings on computer based teaching.Results: Test performance in groups I and 2 was similar (60% vs 62% correct answers, p >0.05). On the other hand, 23 of 31 students using the multimedia program believed that it did not adequately replace the instructor and interaction with a mentor still seems to be relevant.Conclusions: According to this study computers and multimedia programs can be used for undergraduate education in urology, providing that direct contact with an instructor is concomitantly offered to students.
