BACKGROUND: The healthcare needs of the general population are on the rise and to meet these demands, the healthcare professionals, especially doctors have to acquire a large number of skills. In the Indian settings, as of now, conventional system of education is being followed in medical colleges and this is despite the fact that it has many flaws associated with it. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The objective of the article is to explore the utility and the need of Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) in Indian settings. MATERIALS AND METHODS: It is a brief review of pertaining to the transition of delivery of medical education in India and is well-supported by the studies from different nations. RESULTS: CBME is a thoughtful approach to develop physicians in their future practice and encourages better accountability and flexibility. However, if so many things are good with CBME, then the question arises why it has not been implemented yet across all the medical colleges in India? This is because of the various challenges which have been identified in the planning and implementation phase of the program. CONCLUSION: In conclusion, CBME remains the ultimate solution for the problems persisting in the conventional system of medical education. However, a systemic plan and better involvement of the stakeholders in the preparedness phase will significantly enhance the chances of the success of the program.
