Need of social distancing has compelled physicians and surgeons to continue medical education through virtual mode like webinar. Objective: To study the perceptions, practice and preferences of medical residents and professionals about webinar-based teaching. Methods: An internet-based google-sheet questionnaire was circulated via email and social media for opining different facts about webinar-based teaching. Responses were analysed further to find the facts and preferences. Results: Our study showed that majority of participants found webinars as a useful and sustainable mode of teaching however some of them felt it as an overdone action resulting in unnecessary stress.
