Aim:Van Yüzüncü Yıl University is one of the few universities giving hybrid training in the Faculty of Medicine during Covid-19 Pandemic. In this process our students that are in 1,2,3,4 and 5.period were able to continue their education both online and the face. Intern students did their internship face to face. The aim of this study is to evaluate hybrid learning system from the perspective of medical school students during the pandemic process.

The survey consists of age, gender, faculty proficiency, quality of the course, efficiency of the instructors, easy learning and permanence, fast solution, social environment and behavioral effect, technology availability etc. questions. Descriptive statistics of the data collected from the students by means of survey were calculated. In addition, the answers received from the students who are in preclinical(1-2-3) and clinical period(4-5) were compared.

Results:The number of responses from preclinical and clinical period students are 335(n=183 male, n=152 female),140(n=80 male, n=152 female), respectively."Face to face training is an advantage for us in pandemic process."The response percentage of those who agreed and strongly agreed with this statement in the preclinical and clinical period’s students was 49.2 and 80 respectively."I think the pandemic process is part of medicine training."The response percentage of those who agreed and strongly agreed with this statement in the preclinical and clinical period's students was 49.2 and 80 respectively.

Conclusions:Students are generally considered to be satisfied with this system. Also most of the students in the preclinic period expressed that the courses must be recorded in the online environment in the following years while most of the students in the clinical period have stated that physical conditions for face-to-face education are not sufficient.
