A medical student is expected to acquire multiple learning competencies during the course of his/her training period. The present review was carried out to explore the scope, merits, and challenges attributed to telesimulation in medical education, and devise a plan to successfully implement the same in medical college settings. An extensive search of all materials related to the topic was carried out on the PubMed search engine and a total of 33 articles were selected based on their suitability with the current review objectives. Keywords used in the search include telesimulation and medical education in the title alone only. Telesimulation has emerged as an innovative approach in the last couple of decades to strengthen and facilitate education, training, and assessment processes in the field of medicine. Similar to any method, even telesimulation has its own limitations that need to be addressed for enhancing the overall effectiveness and benefit to the medical students. Telesimulation plays an important role in facilitating the acquisition of knowledge, kinesthetic, and procedural skills through real-time training and via the inputs given during feedback or debriefing sessions. To conclude, telesimulation is a new domain in medical education, which has the potential to offer an ample number of opportunities in application and research. The need of the hour is to explore the effectiveness of telesimulation in training different topics and the learning objectives that can be covered and accordingly integrate the same for the benefit of medical students or other health professionals.
