Peer teaching is an educational methodology in which groups of students interact among each other. One group takes on the role of the educator and the other one takes on the role of the student, which benefits both of them. We report here the case of a program where this methodology was used by students in a medical school in Lima, Peru, who were tutors of junior students from the same faculty. The activities and resources used in this methodology are also described.

Keywords : Premedical education; teaching; medical schools.
