Satisfaction on teaching in basic science is an important element for academic performance in final postgraduate examination. Basic sciences is an important subject in bridging understanding in clinical psychiatry but often poses difficulties among young postgraduate trainees, especially if they have not been exposed frequently to the topic areas like integrative neuroanatomy, neurophysiology and neurochemistry. Simple questionnaire regarding satisfaction on teaching was asked to 17 postgraduate candidates from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and Universiti Malaya (UM) and their MCQ paper performance was obtained to validate between satisfaction on teaching and their academic achievement. This simple descriptive study was to determine areas of difficulties and teaching satisfactory levels on basic sciences. Moderately satisfied candidates scored better on basic sciences topic compared to candidates with low and high satisfaction ((Mean, SD = 49.7 ± 4.5, 41.6 ± 5.9 and 39.6 ± 0) respectively. Recommendation avenues for improvement in the near future, especially concerning the ongoing revision course that is organized by the Department of Psychiatry, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia was briefly discussed.
