Background. Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) has been widely used in medical education. Training From Senior Student (TFSS) is a PAL-scheme program in Skills-Lab FM GMU which one of its aim is to facilitate students to master their cinical skills. However, since the program was implemented, failure rate in OSCE is still high and this program has never been evaluated. Objectives. To explore students’, assistants’ and faculty’s perceptions on the benefits of TFSS in students’ clinical skills acquisition. Methods. This study used exploratory focus group discussion (FGD) of 4 groups of year 3 students (2 tutors and 2 tutees) and indepth interview to 6 faculty staffs which were chosen purposively. The data were then transcribed and analysed for themes using deductive content analysis. Results. Thirty-six respondents joined the study (30 medical students; 6 faculty staffs). The respondents’ opinions were viewed from 3 aspects of clinical skills learning, cognitive-metacognitive aspects, social-motivational aspects and organizational aspects. As a whole, the view of each respondent was not much different. TFSS enhanced cognitive, metacognitive, social and motivational aspects of both students’ and assistants’ learning but it didn’t provide the optimal opportunity for participants to practice their skills. Various related problems in organizing were found. Conclusions. TFSS provided positive benefits on cognitive-metacognitive and social-motivational aspects of clinical skills learning but not for the opportunity to practice the clinical skills. Improvements need to be done to enhance the quality and quantity of clinical skills training. Keywords : Training From Senior Students, Peer-Assisted Learning, TFSS, Skills Acquisition, Peer Teaching
