Abstract: The purpose of this study is to provide some insights on the ability of sixth grade medical students and interns to recall the theoretical knowledge of pharmacology. A cross-sectional study was conducted among students graduating from three different medical schools in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. A questionnaire survey was conducted among male and female students from three different medical colleges. The questionnaire included demographic information and ten multiple-choice questions (MCQ) on basic pharmacology. Of the 161 students, 39 were women (24 ) and 122 were men (76 ). A total of 36 (22 ) students studied in traditional learning schools, while 125 (78 ) students studied in problem-based learning (PBL) schools. These students come from three universities: KSU, KSAU-HS and KFC-COM. In general, 31 students (19 ) of the participants scored ≥ 7 out of 10, 77 students (48 ) of them obtained a correct score of (4–6) out of 10, and 53 students (33 ) scored less than 4. The study showed no statistically significant difference in recalling pharmacology between traditional school and problem based learning school except for those who prepared for exams. Results suggest that pharmacology is a difficult subject. Reevaluations are needed in the way of teaching pharmacology.
