Continuing Professional Development refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that one gains in their career after the initial training. There is no structured and uniform way of assessing and documenting ones progress professionally in our country. Every medical teacher wishes to perfect him/herself. They do so at their own pace by identifying the resources available and time permissible. This observational questionnaire based study was conducted to understand the perceptions of medical teacher on various aspects of ‘Professional Development Plan’ through Mentoring and Learning (ML) Web sessions. Six open ended questions which were answered by participants were analyzed. Seven out of 32 (21.87%) responded to survey questionnaire.
