Objectives Since the worldwide spread of Covid 19 pandemic, medical education is affected. To ensure the integrity and the continuity of medical education e-learning has been adopted.

Methods To evaluate the efficiency of e-learning in gynecologic oncology education in time of Covid 19 pandemic, we do a comparative study including 30 undergraduate medical students. Half of them received traditional learning about four gynecologic cancer (endometrial, ovarian, cervical and breast cancers), the others received an e-learning education for the same chapters. Clinical knowledge was evaluated before and after getting the courses in the two groups.

Results There wasn’t a significant differences comparing the two groups evaluations. Before getting the endometrial cancer course, 74% of e-learning group students (first group) have less than the average score (5/10), versus 68% in the groupe of traditional learning (the second group). By receiving the course, the rate of good response (more than 5/10) increases respectively to 92 and 94%. Similar rates were reported for the other delivered chapters.

Conclusions Based on the non significant differences between results of the two learning methods, e-learning is a efficient tool to provide gynecologic oncology education in time of Covid 19 pandemic. More studies are needed to evaluate the implementation and the student’s adherence to this educational process.
