CONTEXT: Global adoption of competency-based medical education (CBME) is a paradigm shift in India. Faculties play a key role in implementation by identifying and solving the challenges in CBME. AIMS: Perspectives of the faculties were undertaken to known about CBME implementation. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: Qualitative study design. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The study included 270 medical faculties who were trained in CBME from May to September 2019. A prevalidated, closed, quantitative questionnaire was administered to faculties. Likert's 3-point scale was used for rating. STATISTICAL ANALYSIS USED: Data were analyzed based on percentage. RESULTS: Ninety-seven percent of faculties perceived that CBME should be the current method of approach, 88% perceived the need of more resources, 61% were better prepared to face the challenges in implementation of CBME, 47% perceived that training in CBME reduced resistance to accept CBME, and 45% needed more clarification on self-directed learning (SDL), assessment, and certification of skills. CONCLUSIONS: Implementation requires more resources and more clarity about SDL, assessment, and certification skill.
