Background: Writing an appropriate prescription is one of the main competencies of medical doctors. Studies revealed that medication errors is still a great issue in health service, and many effort has been done to minimise this through trainings. Integrative pharmacotherapy is a module delivered for medical students in clinical clerkship. The module is adopted and developed from the WHO’s Guide to Good Prescribing. Method: The aim of the study was to see the effect of the module on pre- and post-test scores which consists of 17 clinical cases. Results: Eighty one subjects were randomly selected from the data set consists of 200 students. There was an increase of post-test score and statistically significanty compared to pre-test score from 42.07 ± 12.45 to 58.47 ± 8.54 (P = 0.000, CI -19.36;-13.45). There were 69 (> 85%) students who had grade D and E at the pre-test, but the number was decreased to 18 (22,2%) out of 81 subjects at post-test. Grade C students increased from 13.5% to 70.4% and Grade B from 1% to 7%, respectively. Conclusion: Most of the students were first entries into clinical clerkship, thus, their pre-test score were very low, since they have not yet the clinical experience. But at the end of the clerkship, there was a significant increase on their knowledge on pharmacotherapy for particular diseases. An outcome study to measure the retention and to see their success on the final competency examination should be done.
