Background: The use of consent in patient care is a critical skill it is as essential as any other basic standard on which surgical exercise relies. In the present study, an effort was made to formulate a module for training interns on this skill. Materials and Methods: After taking permission from IEC, 140 interns were enrolled for the study. After needs assessment, a module for training the interns for taking informed consent in all scenarios was prepared and validated. Interns were assessed using directly observed procedural skill (DOPS). Feedback was taken from interns and faculty on training through this module at the end of their posting. Results: A total of 140 interns undertook 3 DOPS each and all the interns performed: nonsatisfactory in DOPS 1 (below 4 in each subcompetency), satisfactorily in DOPS 2 (4–6 in each subcompetency), and satisfactorily in DOPS 3 (6–8). Comparison of DOPS 1, 2, and 3 done was done using repeated measure ANOVA and P value was highly statistically significant (P = 0.000). Comparison of progression of scores showed statistically significant P value (P = 0.000). Conclusion: DOPSs is an effective and feasible assessment tool for assessing interns for taking informed consent.
