Implementation of Competency-Based Medical Education in 2019 has brought significant changes in the delivery of medical education in India. Attitude, ethics, and communication module has been introduced in to focus on the much-overlooked soft skill aspects and real-life scenarios that will be encountered during future medical practice. The present study has used thematic analysis to understand the effect of this newly implemented module on undergraduates. Qualitative data analysis of thematic type was performed for gaining in-depth perceptions. Analysis revealed that students observed the importance of various roles and their hard work involved in hospital functioning. Students felt they would practice attributes of collaborative work, enhanced communication, and respect for all support systems in future practice. Students perceived the module positively and got to know the facets of under-recognized roles of health-care workers other than medical professions, whose role is crucial for delivering quality health-care services.
