"Learning by Living” approach of the Malawi College of Medicine is a useful tool in the training of undergraduate medical students that exposes them to rural life. It is important, because majority of Malawian population lives in rural areas. There is need to evaluate the perceptions of students and how the learning goals may be achieved, as well as to obtain community perception about the program. Although “Learning by Living” approach attempts to place students in natural environment, as rural areas are expected to be, it seems that students cannot observe the “reality” of the life in Malawi villages because the behavior of community changes in the presence of visitors."
